2022 Annual Wage Review Decision

The Fair Work Commission has handed down its annual wage review decision for 2022.

The Panel decided to increase modern award minimum wages by 4.6 per cent subject to a minimum increase for adult award classifications of $40 per week. The $40 per week increase is based on a 38-hour week for a full-time employee. In effect, modern award minimum wage rates above $869.60 per week will receive a 4.6 per cent adjustment, wage rates below $869.60 per week will be adjusted by $40 per week.

For most Modern Awards the increase will come into effect from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2022.

SPAAL will provide members with the new Award Pay Guides once published by the Fair Work Ombudsman.
