The Fair Work Commission has announced a 3.0% increase to minimum wages following its 2019 Annual Wage Review.
The new national minimum wage will be $740.80 per week or $19.49 per hour.
The increase applies to base pay rates from the first full pay period starting on or after 1 July 2019.
What do I need to do?
If you have employees that are remunerated at the National Minimum Wage then please review to ensure that you are paying in accordance to this recent change.
Who does the increase apply to?
The change only applies to employees that get their pay rates from the national minimum wage, a modern award or in some cases a registered agreement.
Most employees are covered by an award. If you’re not sure which award applies to you or your employees, you can use Find my award on the Australian Government Fair Work Ombudsman website.
