What is MyPortal?
From 1 January 2010, modern awards cover most workplaces. Modern awards were created to establish one set of minimum conditions for employers and employees across Australia who work in the same industries or occupations.
Modern awards, together with the National Employment Standards (NES) and the national minimum wage orders made by the Fair Work Commission, make up the safety net for employees covered by the national workplace relations system.
