Annual Wage Review 2014-15

Fair Work Commission – Annual Wage Review 2014 – 2015

We write to advise that on Tuesday 2 June 2015, the Fair Work Commission’s Minimum Wage Panel handed down its Annual Wage Review decision under the Fair Work Act 2009. The national minimum wage has increased to $656.90 per week or $17.29 per hour.

The outcome of the review in relation to modern award minimum wages is that from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2015 the minimum weekly wages are increased by 2.5%, with commensurate increases in hourly rates on the basis of a 38 hour week. Clients that currently have enterprise agreements in force will need to check their wages against the modern award minimum wages that will take effect.

Wage Schedules for the Modern Awards are now available on our website for members.
