Minimum wage increased by 1.75%

An increase to the minimum wage of 1.75% started rolling out for the first full pay period from 1 July 2020.

The increase applies to minimum rates in awards in 3 stages: 

Group 1 Awards - from 1 July 2020

Group 2 Awards - from 1 November 2020

Group 3 Awards - from 1 February 2021

You can find the full list of impacted Awards on the Fair Work Ombudsman’s website.

For anyone not covered by an award or an agreement, the new national minimum wage of $753.80 per week or $19.84 per hour, applies from the first full pay period starting on or after 1 July 2020.

The minimum wage increase does not impact on workers receiving above the minimum wage.

For employees at or close to the minimum wage, it is essential that employers are aware of the impact and timing of the increase to avoid falling foul of their industrial and superannuation obligations.
