Query regarding an apprentice who was employed as a full-time apprentice electrician – it was a quiet day work-wise and he was told to finish work early one day. The employer didn't pay him a full day's pay. What is the correct situation?

A full-time apprentice works a 38 hour week (including paid TAFE training). Therefore, if the employer chooses to give an employee the afternoon off, the employee is still required to be paid for the 38 hour week.
