On 30 October 2020, the Fair Work Commission (the Commission) announced updates to the casual and overtime clauses in 97 awards. The updated clauses started from the first full pay period on or after 20 November 2020.

The updates are different for each award, but some common examples of how some awards have been updated include, clarifying:

  • how casual and overtime loadings interact
  • whether casuals are entitled to overtime
  • the hours when overtime applies.

These updates could mean changes to overtime pay rates for casual employees.
