The Fair Work Commission has issued changes to the Hospitality Industry (General) Award 2010, which will take effect from the start of the first full pay period starting on or after 1 January 2018.
The changes to the Hospitality Industry (General) Award 2010 fall broadly into two categories: providing for greater flexibility in rostering of hours for part-time employees and providing for the entitlement to overtime penalty rates by casual employees.

Another change to the award entitles casual employees to overtime penalty rates, specifically providing as follows:
The changes take effect from the start of the first full pay period starting on or after 1 January 2018.
