Changes to the Pastoral Award 2010.

Changes to the Pastoral Award 2010.

The Fair Work Commission has issued changes to the Pastoral Award 2010, which will take effect from the start of the first full pay period starting on or after 1 January 2018.

What are the changes?

This update is in relation to junior employees that are school students and who are engaged to perform the work of a dairy operator. The minimum engagement period for these employees has been reduced to two hours. In order for this reduced minimum engagement period to apply, the employee must be:

  • engaged to perform the work of a dairy operator;
  • aged 18 years or younger; and
  • a full-time secondary school student.

Practically speaking, this means that every time an employee who meets all of the above criteria is required to attend for work, they are entitled to a minimum payment of two hours’ work.

What do employers do now?

The changes take effect from the start of the first full pay period starting on or after 1 January 2018.

In order to help you ensure you have the most appropriate rates for employees in your organisation, Employsure will have new pay rate schedules available in the new year. These can be found on MyEmploysure Portal.
