The Fair Work Commission has announced a 3.5% increase to minimum wages following its 2018 Annual Wage Review. The increase will apply to base rates of pay from the first full pay period starting on or after 1 July 2018.
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.
