Reminder – minimum wage increases from 1 July 2019

The minimum wage has increased by 3% to $740.80 per week commencing the first full pay period from 1 July 2019. For employees covered by a modern award, these pay rates will also increase by 3% and the Fair Work Ombudsman is in the process of calculating these increases to include them in each award. Consequently, all employees pay rates should be reviewed and updated to accommodate for these changes.
