by | Nov 5, 2021 | Fair Work, News, Wage Obligations

In this year’s annual wage review, the Fair Work Commission decided to implement the increases to award wages in three stages.

In the third and final of those stages, the following awards will see minimum rates increased by 2.5% with effect from 1 November 2021:

  • Pilots Award
  • Cabin Crew Award
  • Airline Ground Staff Award
  • Airport Award
  • Alpine Resorts Award
  • Amusement Award
  • Dry Cleaning and Laundry Award
  • Fitness Award
  • Hair and Beauty Award
  • Hospitality Award
  • Live Performance Award
  • Models Award
  • Marine Tourism and Charter Vessels Award
  • Nursery Award
  • Racing Clubs Events Award
  • Racing Ground Maintenance Award
  • Registered Clubs Award
  • Restaurant Award
  • Sporting Organisations Award
  • Travelling Shows Award
  • Wine Award

From this date, employees covered by any of these awards must, at a minimum, be paid the new award rate for ordinary hours.

If employees are paid above the award rates, the increases can be absorbed against over award payments subject to any qualifications that may be included in enterprise agreements or contracts of employment.\

The normal penalties and loadings apply (on top of those minimum rates) for overtime, shiftwork and work on weekends, early mornings, evenings and public holidays.
