Salaries for managers in the Hospitality Award

If hotel managers are paid 25% more than the minimum annual salary, they don’t get some award entitlements. These include allowances, breaks, penalty rates and overtime. This is called salary absorption.

Clause 25 of the Hospitality Award sets out the requirements for salary absorption for hotel managers.

Does the salary need to be compared with what they would otherwise be paid?

No. This requirement doesn’t apply to managers being paid under the salary absorption clause.
