In accordance with the Fair Work Commission’s four-yearly review of modern awards, from 1 May 2021, junior rates from levels 4 to 8 of the General Retail Industry Award 2020 will be removed from the Award and adult rates will apply for any junior engaged in those levels. Junior rates from levels 1 – 3 however, remain the same.

As such, employers with employees under this Award are encouraged to inform junior employees that there will be a change in their pay rate from the next pay period after 1 May 2021.

The Fair Work Ombudsman has updated it’s General Retail Industry Award 2020 pay guide to reflect the changes which can be downloaded via

Please contact the BetterHR for guidance and clarity on steps you need take.

The decision comes after the Fair Work Commission considered a number of factors including:

–          Most junior employees are engaged between levels 1 to 3 of the Award.

–          The skills and competencies required to perform roles at levels 4 to 8 apply to all employees who hold positions at those levels and as such adult rates should apply regardless of the age.

–          It was uncommon for junior employees to be engaged at level 4 to 8.
