Annual Wage Review 2020

The Fair Work Commission has announced a 1.75% increase to minimum wages following its 2020 Annual Wage Review. The increase applies to awards in 3 stages, with the first group starting from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2020. This group includes frontline health care and social assistance workers, teachers and child care employees, other essential services and the National Minimum Wage.

You can find the new rates for the first group of awards in our Pay and Conditions Tool and Pay Guides. If you’re using the calculator, just set the date to 1 July 2020 or after.

Subscribe to email updates and we’ll let you know when the new minimum pay rates for the other awards are available in our pay tools.

See The Commission has announced a 1.75% increase to minimum wages for more information.

There are new versions of awards being released throughout 2020.

Check out Changes to awards in 2020 for more information.

Browse the full list of pay guides to access the one that applies to you.

The pay guides have the current minimum pay rates for full-time, part-time and casual employees in an award. They apply from 1 July 2019. They also include all the monetary allowances and the most frequently used penalty rates for each classification.

Pay guides don’t apply when a business has a registered agreement and the employee is covered by it. 

You can also find current pay rates, and pay rates from past years, by using our Pay Calculator.

Every award has information about who is covered by it. You can visit the Awards page if you’re not sure which one applies to you.
