List of awards

Browse the list of industry and occupation awards below to access the one that applies to you. If you don't know which one applies, we can help you find your award.

How awards apply

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).
