Further Minimum Award Rate Increases from 1 October 2022

Further to our blog earlier this year, an increase to the minimum wage has come into effect for several modern awards as of 1 October 2022.

This update comes as part of the Fair Work Commission’s 2022 Federal minimum award wage increase and affects the following ten modern awards:

  • Air Pilots Award
  • Aircraft Cabin Crew Award
  • Airline Operations – Ground Staff Award
  • Airport Employees Award
  • Airservices Australia Enterprise Award 2016
  • Hospitality Industry (General) Award
  • Registered and Licensed Clubs Award
  • Restaurant Industry Award
  • Alpine Resorts Award
  • Marine Tourism and Charter Vessels Award

Employees under these awards will see a wage increase of 4.6 percent for wages above $869.60 per week or $40 per week for those below that amount.

It is vital for employers to be aware of any awards that apply to their employees and stay up-to-date with changes to modern awards, as failure to comply with minimum wages can result in significant penalties for businesses.
