Minimum Wages

Under Australian employment laws, an employee's minimum pay rate can come from a modern award, enterprise agreement or other registered agreement or the national minimum wage.

Penalty Rates

Employees are also often entitled to a higher pay rate when working:

  • weekends
  • public holidays
  • overtime
  • late nights shifts or
  • early morning shifts.


Employees are also often entitled to allowances when they:

  • do certain tasks or have a particular skill
  • use their own tools at work
  • work in unpleasant or dangerous conditions.
