Contract cleaners' pay rates

The Cleaning Award covers employers and employees in the contract cleaning services industry.

Pay rates under the Cleaning Award are based on a number of things, including the state or territory where the work is being done, the day of the week, and the time of day.

Use our Cleaning Calculators to work out the pay rates, penalties and overtime rates for contract cleaners, including trolley collectors, under the Cleaning Award.

These calculators will apply until 31 December 2014 after which the rates can be obtained directly through the Cleaning Services Award.

For people working in the ACT, NT, QLD, TAS, VIC and WA, use the ACT, NT, QLD, TAS, VIC & WA Cleaning Calculator (XLSM 1.3MB).

For people working in NSW, use the NSW Cleaning Calculator (XLSM 1.1MB).

For people working in SA, use the SA Cleaning Calculator (XLSM 946KB).
