Changes to entitlements in some awards

From 1 January 2018, the Fair Work Commission (FWC) has made some changes to casual and part-time entitlements in some awards.

The FWC introduced overtime rates for casual employees in many awards and changed how part-time hours can be worked in other awards. The following awards have changes:
– Fast Food Award
– Hair and Beauty Award
– Hospitality Award
– Passenger Vehicle Award
– Pastoral Award
– Rail Award
– Registered Clubs Award
– Restaurant Award
– Retail Award
– Social and Community Services Award
– Wine Award

If you employ casual or part-time employees in any of the aforementioned awards, check the Fair Work Commission’s website for more details to ensure you are paying your workers the correct amount.
