  • Clerks Award
  • Educational Services (Schools) General Staff Award
  • Fast Food Award
  • Hospitality Award
  • Restaurant Award
  • Vehicle Award.

For more information on these award variations, go to Temporary changes to workplace laws during coronavirus.

The minimum wages and conditions an employee is entitled to are set out in awards (also known as modern awards). Awards don’t apply when an employer has an enterprise agreement or other registered agreement and the employee is covered by it. 

Every award has information about who is covered by it. To work out which award applies, read:

  • the coverage clause (usually clause 4)
  • the job classifications (usually in the pay section or a schedule).
