With the financial year coming to a close, we at DSC wish to highlight the Annual Wage Review for 2019 and how it applies for both employers & employees.
The Fair Work Commission has recently handed down its 10th Annual Wage Review. This year the national increase is 3% and applies to all Modern Award pay rates.
The minimum hourly rate for a full-time adult is now $19.49 ($740.80 per week) and casual employment is a minimum of $24.36. If you employ under any modern award and pay the award rate, you are required to pass on this increase to your employees. If you are already paying above the award and the pay rate is less than what you are currently paying, it is at your discretion if you pass on any increase.
The increased pay rates are effective from the first full pay period after the 1st of July 2019. If you run a Tuesday to Monday payroll the new pay rates will come into effect from the 2nd of July 2019.
At DSC we are proud to say that not only do we genuinely care about all of our clients and employees, we also pay all our employees in accordance with the Award.
