Industrial awards set the legal minimum pay rates for employees of Australian businesses. Understanding which award(s) apply to your staff and what your pay and associated obligations are under your binding award is critical to avoiding costly underpayment claims and significant fines for breach of award (up to $63,000!)
For peace of mind, confirm award coverage and wage classification levels for your staff with our Employee Relations Advice Centre team* and then keep up-to-date with changes to your modern or state award with the CCI’s industrial awards service.
This service covers most modern awards and many of the West Australian state awards and includes:
- a complete copy of the award
- schedule of amendments
- easy-to-use wage schedule
