Go check the new 1 July pay rates

New award wages and allowances come into effect from 1 July 2018 – check yours now!

Where do I get the new rates?

The quickest way to get the new rates is through our Pay and Conditions Tool (PACT). Just remember to set the date to 1 July. You can also get the new award rates from our downloadable pay guides.

Who do the new rates apply to?

The increase only applies to employees that get their pay rates from:

  • the national minimum wage
  • a modern award, or
  • a registered agreement (in some cases).

The increase won’t affect employees who are already getting paid more than the new minimum wages. Visit our website for more information on who the increase applies to.

When do the new rates take effect?

The new pay rates apply from the first full pay period commencing on or after 1 July 2018. So, if your pay week is from Monday to Sunday, the new rates take effect on Monday 2 July.

Got a question?

Rather than waiting on the phone, most people find it easier to submit an online enquiry through Fair Work Ombudsman account service.
