Most employees have OTE as their earnings base, however some have other earnings bases that may be contained in:
- an industrial award
- an existing agreement they have with their employer
- a fund’s trust deed, or
- a Commonwealth, State or Territory law.
OTE as defined in the super guarantee law is generally what an employee earns for ordinary hours of work including over-award payments, shift loading or commissions. It excludes such things as overtime.
