Appointing a temporary manager
If a certified manager is ill, absent, dismissed or resigns, the licensee can appoint a temporary manager. The temporary manager does not need to hold a current manager’s certificate, but must lodge an application for a manager’s certificate within 2 working days of the appointment. The temporary manager's status will remain in effect until their application has been considered.
If the application is not lodged within 2 working days, or the application is refused, the licensee must stop using that person as a manager.
