Guide for use:

This metadata item is asking for actual staff hours worked, not the rostered hours or full-time equivalent staff.

Contract staff employed through an agency are included where the contract is for the supply of labour (e.g. nursing) rather than of products (e.g. photocopier maintenance).

Where agencies have fortnightly pay rolls this metadata item may be calculated by dividing fortnightly hours worked by 2.
