Get set for a 2.4% wage increase – 2016 Annual Wage Review
The Fair Work Commission has announced a 2.4% increase to minimum wages. The increase will apply from the first full pay period starting on or after 1 July 2016.
The new national minimum wage will be $672.70 per week or $17.70 per hour.
The pay guides have minimum pay rates for full-time, part-time and casual employees in an award. They also include all the monetary allowances and the most frequently used penalty rates for each classification.
Pay guides don’t apply when a business has a registered agreement and the employee is covered by it.
Every award has information about who is covered by it. You can visit theA wards page if you’re not sure which one applies to you. Click on the link below to view the Fairwork website for more information:
