      Employment law update

      Changes to minimum wages and a new Fair Work Information Statement

      The Fair Work Commission recently decided that the minimum wage rates for all employees covered by Modern Awards should rise by 2.4% for the first pay period after 1 July 2016. ASOFIA members who pay employees on, or close to, the Award rates of pay would be well advised to check that their pay rates still meet the minimum standards. Swaab Attorneys have set out all the new pay rates in an updated Employment Information Guide which can be found in the Member Only Area of the website.

      Whilst employers can face heavy penalties for paying below the award, we appreciate that ASOFIA members almost all pay their staff significantly more than the award.

      It is important to note that – unless you have an enterprise agreement requiring pay increases on 1 July – there is no requirement to pass on award increases to employees who are already being paid well above the award.

      It is also useful to recap that all new employees must be given a copy of the Fair Work Information Statement (available from the Fair Work Ombudman’s website – www.fwo.gov.au) which sets out their basic rights whilst at work. As of 1 July 2016 there is a new version of the statement. ASOFIA members should make sure the correct version is given to new employees as (again) they can face penalties for failing to do so.

      Login at the top of the page to get a copy of the guide.
