* Notice period and severance pay- if an employee’s position is made redundant at UNSW they must be given a minimum of four weeks’ notice unless they are above the age of 45 then they must be given 5 weeks’ notice or the severance may be paid out. * Hours of work- Here UNSW explain an employee is able to change his or her number of hours worked per week from the standard 38 to either 35 or 36 hours. Their pay would then be 35/38ths of 36/38ths of the annual salary. And a notice of one month must be given. * Performance management and rewards- It is outlined that all staff members of UNSW are held to a 6 month probation and if a supervisor feels the employee is progressing exceptionally well they may choose to accelerate the employee using the schedules mentioned in the base pay section. * Disciplinary matters and termination- This enterprise agreement now breaks down their employee performance management, advising the employee of the issues, providing the employee with the opportunity to change the behaviour or skill gap, if the issue persists providing the employee with an outline of the deficiencies, giving the employee a timeframe, and finally counselling.
