  Get your head around the latest National and Award Minimum Wage increases!

Happy female minimum wage worker at desk


The increases in the National and Award Minimum Wage this year have been confusing! As a business owner, you may still be trying to get across what has changed, how that applies to your business, and how to pay your staff correctly.  

We know these changes have been complex, so we have answered some of your burning questions regarding the minimum wage increases.


  • Do I need to increase my employees’ rate of pay if they are already getting paid higher than the minimum? 
  • Does the national minimum wage increase impact all employees, or just those covered by awards? 
  • Does the minimum wage apply to junior employees? 

 Get the answers to these questions and more in our Minimum Wage FAQs!
