New minimum wage rates apply from next Tuesday, July 1.
The transition to modern award rates of pay also ends on July 1 which will make accessing information on wages and conditions much simpler.
Since 2010, wages in awards have been gradually phasing from multiple state-based rates to one national rate. People have had to identify ‘old’ and ‘new’ award classifications and perform calculations to determine the correct rates. These time-consuming processes will no longer be necessary under the majority of awards from July 1.
The national minimum wage will increase to $16.87 an hour on July 1 and applies from the first pay period on or after that date.
