    Well I rang Fair Work Australia who said it will be under State legislation so I had to call Safework SA. After being in que for over half an hour she thinks they shouldn't have averaged my hours out over the 3 years including the maternity leave. She was getting her boss to double check and then call me back. So I am still waiting, I sent them an email too.

    Well it seems I was correct and they shouldn't have taken my maternity leave into consideration but the actual hours worked before maternity leave. They updated the legislation in 2009 because it used to be unfair for women in my exact situation. So now I have to tell my employer and get my rightfully earned money back. Safe work Sa said I have a claim if they don't do it correctly.
    Thanks for all your help guys.
