In case you missed it - Mandatory rate increases start today!

Updated: Aug 19, 2021

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):

  • Fast Food Industry Award

  • General Retail Industry Award

  • Hospitality Industry (General) Award

  • Live Performance Award

  • Registered and Licensed Clubs Award

  • Restaurant Industry Award

  • Travelling Shows Award

  • Wine Industry Award

If you need help rolling out new rates, (or you aren’t quite sure if you’ve got the rates right in the first place), we’re here to help.
