Changes to Broadcasting and Recorded Entertainment Award (BREA)

Published November 23, 2017 (last updated on June 26, 2024) | Adam Wyatt - Content Writer


The Fair Work Commission has issued a change to the Broadcasting and Recorded Entertainment Award 2010, also known as the BREA Award, which is now in force and employers must comply.

What are the Changes?

The Fair Work Commission (the FWC) has recently made a change to the Broadcasting, Recorded Entertainment and Cinemas Award 2010 (the Award), specifically:

  • The FWC has clarified that junior cinema employees are to be paid a percentage of the Cinema Worker level 3 adult rate, which includes the 8% penalty averaging component.

  • This change has reinforced the way in which junior rates for cinema employees are calculated. As such the rates of pay remain the same, it is the wording in the award which has been simplified.

What Do I Need to Do?

  • Ensure that you pay junior cinema employees the correct rate of pay.
