Minimum wage increase Nov 1

New minimum rates and allowances are set for 73 awards from the first full pay period on or after 1 November 2020.

The changes are a result of the Fair Work Commission’s decision earlier this year to introduce a 1.73 per cent increase in the national minimum wage.

The increase has been staggered across three different ‘groups’ of awards in recognition of the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on various industries. 

The 1 November increase to ‘Group 2’ awards will affect 73 awards, including construction and manufacturing.

Increases to Group 1 awards started 1 July 2020, and changes to Group 3 awards will start on 1 February 2021.

CCIWA Members can access details of the decision, group lists and payment tools via Business Toolbox.
