Helpful info about wage increases

  • Every year, the Fair Work Commission reviews the National Minimum Wage and minimum rates of pay in modern Awards to decide if they should be increased.
  • This process is called the Annual Wage Review or AWR for short.
  • The AWR usually happens between March and June. Any changes generally come into effect on the first full pay period after 1 July.
  • Most employees over the age of 21 years old are covered by an Award.

  • An award is a legal document that outlines the wages and conditions of employment for employees that are covered by it within a particular industry or occupation (such as Call Centres).

  • Award pay rates can be changed by the AWR.

  • Generally, award rates are increased by a percentage amount, rather than a dollar amount.
  • The National Minimum Wage applies to employees not covered by an Award or registered agreement.

  • As of 1 July 2024, the National Minimum Wage is $24.10 an hour.

  • The National Minimum Wage is reviewed and generally increased each year as part of the AWR.
