Fair Work changes affect thousands of businesses

Fair Work Australia changes come into effect 1st of March 2020. Does this affect your business?

Who is impacted?

Many awards have already been impacted including the Clerks-Private Sector Award and Pharmacy award. The next major industries to be impacted include the hospitality industry general award and the Restaurant Industry Award. These two awards alone will impact thousands of businesses and millions of employees.

Why were these changes made?

These changes have been made to help salaried employees who were working 50, 60, 70, 80 hours a week and more but only getting paid for 40 hours .

How does it work?

Effectively salaried staff now need to sign in and out each day and based on the hours worked over 12 months they must not be worse off than the appropriate modern award.

What can I do?

If you’re not currently asking salaried staff to sign in and out you should start, if you use timesheets for the purpose you should consider electronic for easy annualized reporting.
