Recently, The Fair Work Commission have released their decision to increase the national minimum wage by 3.5%, taking effect from the first full pay period following 1 July 2018.


This increase applies across the board to adult modern award rates including leave loading and overtime. It is imperative that you are aware of the award rates so that you can ensure that you are compliant with all award terms.


By the end of June, you will be able to access an updated version of the award rates via the Fair Work website.


If you are unsure about what the new award rates will mean for you and your business, please feel free to give us a call at our office (07) 3832 7544 or contact us online at
