Changes to the Wine Industry Award 2010. (Last Updated On: January 8, 2018)

The Fair Work Commission has issued changes to the Wine Industry 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 regarding the minimum engagement period for casual employees that are engaged to complete pruning or harvesting work. The minimum engagement period for these employees has reduced from four hours to two hours when a weather event not expected at the start of the pruning or harvesting shift prevents the employee from completing four hours’ work. In this situation, the casual employee must be paid for a minimum 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.
