Pay your employees the correct Award rate
Accurate advice from the experts you can trust
Industrial Awards set the legal minimum wage in Western Australia. They also provide a number of minimum terms and conditions, for employees who are covered by an applicable Award.
Paying the correct award rate including casual pay rates and overtime rates is critical as underpayments can accumulate quickly and if left unchecked, can significantly impact your business’ bottom line. Ensuring your business complies with the relevant Award terms and conditions is critical to ensuring fair treatment of your workers and avoiding costly underpayment claims and significant fines for serious contraventions of up to $630,000.
We provide peace of mind for the WA business community – helping our Members and clients to pay their employees correctly and avoid underpayment claims, and assisting the WA workforce by ensuring fair treatment of Award employees.
We cover many of the WA State Awards and most Modern Awards, including the Mining Industry Awards, manufacturing Awards, Hospitality Awards and Retail Awards.
Our Industrial Award Subscription Service includes:
- A complete copy of the relevant Award
- Annotations to assist in understanding the application of certain clauses in the relevant Award
- A comprehensive, easy-to-use Wage Schedule
- Important email updates following an Award amendment, including a Schedule of Amendments
If you require access to more than one Award or need written advice regarding which Awards cover your business and employees, we can help with this too.
