From July 1 2019, all Award rates increased by 3%. If you have staff who are paid on or close to Award rates, now is the time to check that your pay rates comply with the increased rates.

A number of high profile underpayment cases have recently highlighted how a failure to keep on top of annual Award increases have resulted in significant and expensive underpayment claims, as well as reputational damage.

If you need assistance reviewing your pay rates against the increased Award wages, Perks People Solutions can provide you with expert and tailored advice.
