The Fair Work Commission has announced a 3% wage increase effective as of the first pay period from the 1st July. The 3% increase will increase the minimum wage to $740.80 per week or $19.49 per hour.

The 3% increase will apply to:

Where Individual Flexibility Agreements (IFA) are being used, rates used in calculations should be revisited to ensure that they meet the new minimum rates.
