The Fair Work Ombudsman is committed to ensuring that information available through this tool including data is accurate and incorporates changes to minimum rates of pay, allowances and penalty rates and selected minimum entitlements in the National Employment Standards as soon as they come into effect.

However, we cannot guarantee or accept any liability for the accuracy, reliability, currency or completeness of the information available through this tool. This is because, for example, there may be a delay between when a change takes effect, and when the information available through this tool is updated.

When considering information available through this tool about awards you should also have regard to the terms of the relevant award, which can be found through our Awards page. If our information is inconsistent with the award, then the award applies.

If you need further assistance you can contact us. Alternatively, you may wish to get independent advice from a union, employer association or lawyer on your particular circumstances.

We encourage you to subscribe to email updates to receive alerts when pay rates and entitlements change in this tool.

To help you find the information you need, we'd like to know if you are an employee or an employer. This will help tailor the tool to use language relevant to you.
