Fair Work Ombudsman Report on Wage increase

Get set for a 3% wage increase

The Fair Work Commission has announced a 3% increase to minimum wages. The increase will apply from the first full pay period starting on or after 1 July 2014.

We're working on updating our pay tools with the new pay rates and we'll send you an email when they're available.

The increase only applies to employees that get their pay rates from the national minimum wage, a modern award or in some cases a registered agreement.

The new national minimum wage will be $640.90 per week or $16.87 per hour. The national minimum wage applies to employees who aren't covered by an award or agreement.

Most employees are covered by an award. Award rates will increase by 3%. If you're not sure which award applies to you, visit How to find an award.

What happens next?

The Fair Work Commission will issue draft determinations and orders about how this decision affects each modern award. We'll send you an email when our pay tools have been updated with the new pay rates. Updated information will be available by 1 July 2014.
