(2) Legal employment - An employer who, without contravening subclause (1) of this clause, requires or permits a member of one class of his employees to perform for longer than 60 minutes in the aggregate on any day, either in addition to his own work or in substitution therefor, work of another class for which either—
(a) a wage higher than that of his own class; or
(b) a rising scale of wages terminating in a wage higher than that of his own class,

is prescribed shall pay to such employee in respect of that day—

(i) in the case referred to in paragraph (a), not less than the daily wage calculated at the higher rate; and

(3) Any person that makes an arbitration award regarding the interpretation or application of clause 3.9(1) of Division A may award to the Council an amount not exceeding the difference between the amount which the employer paid to the employee and the amount which the employer would have paid if the contravention or failure had not occurred provided that if the arbitrator is unable on all the evidence to determine the difference exactly he or she shall to the best of his or her ability estimate the difference. The Council must upon receipt of that amount deposit the amount into a Special Account established by the Council for that purpose.
