I have recently landed my first real industry job with a 3d architecture company and have been working there for the around 2 months now with renewal of my 3 month contract coming up soon. Firstly I need to clarify the conditions of my contract. I am currently contracted fulltime although I?m capped at a payable 40hrs per/wk - however since i started I?ve been working 50hr weeks minimum. I do not receive any entitlements such as super, sick leave and tax is not taken out of my pay. I am currently paid $19per/hr, which is crap when you deduct tax and super contributions. My job title is currently 3D artist/Graphic design however I?m also acting as an ?art director' and take allot of responsibility for that side of things.
What i need to know is:
(a) - If my contract is fulltime do they have to pay super?
(b) - What is a fair hourly rate given the hrs i work, responsibility etc.
(c) - what other things should I demand when my contract is up for renewal?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
