FWA Annual Wage Decision
The Fair Work Australia 2011 Annual Wage Review decision increases:
• modern award weekly wages by 3.4%
• the national minimum wage for adults to $589.30 per week or $15.51 per hour
• allowances under applicable modern awards
• minimum rates for juniors, apprentices and trainees.
Employers need to ensure that they pay affected employees the appropriate new modern award or minimum pay rate from the first pay period on or after 1 July 2011.
Most employers and employees are affected by these rises.
To find the minimum rates of pay, allowances and penalty rates that apply, you will need to know your modern award.
