Awards set out employment conditions and minimum rates of pay. Whilst not every occupation is covered by an award, there are over 100 awards that cover most employees.
As an employer you must adhere to them.
On a rolling four-year basis, the Fair Work Commission reviews awards. During the week, the Fair Work Commission updated the first of three sets of awards.
Whilst the amendments are largely in respect of set out and clarification, there have been some changes to entitlements that an employer must comply with.
