Employers must ensure that the Fair Work Commission approved increase of 2.4% to the minimum award wage is applied by the first pay period on or after the 1st July 2016.
The increase applies to employees that get pay rates from the national minimum wage, a modern award or in some cases a registered agreement.
The majority employees are covered by an award. If you’re not sure which award applies to you or your employees, check out the Fair Work Office List of awards, or contact our Client Business Support Service team firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rowe Partners will be advised by the office of the Fair Work Ombudsman when the new rates have been published and clients will be advised. You will find the new rates when published at https://www.fairwork.gov.au/pay/minimum-wages/pay-guides
