2015 National Annual Wage Review

May 30, 2015 | LBW News

Ange Jones

The Fair Work Commission announced a 2.5% increase to minimum wages to apply from the first full pay period starting on or after 1 July 2015.

This will apply to any employee paid according to the national minimum wage or as prescribed in a modern award.

From 1 July 2015 the national minimum wage will increase to $656.90 per week ($17.29 per hour).

The Fair Work Commission will issue draft determinations and orders for each award to clarify how this decision will affect wage rates.

Relevant pay details and online tools will be updated on the Fair Work Commission’s website http://www.fairwork.gov.au/pay.
