In case you missed it - Mandatory rate increases start today!
Today has been all about lockdown in WA, but don’t forget February 1 is also the day that minimum rates increase by 1.75% across food services and retail businesses (collectively called “group 3” by Fair Work).
These are the pay rises that normally happen in July, which were delayed in 2020 for industries hardest-hit by COVID-19 closures.
This impacts our clients in these industries (find the full list here):
