benefits for your business

With over 120 Modern Awards, we will help you understand your obligations to your employees when it comes to: 

  • Minimum pay rates
  • Types of employment
  • Overtime 
  • Penalty rates
  • Allowances
  • Leave entitlements

Every year there are thousands of Fair Work claims in Australia. You can protect your business and avoid costly penalties and court proceedings by staying up to date with the current and changing obligations for your employees’ pay and entitlements.

If there is a change to minimum pay rates for one of your employees, not being up to date with your obligations can leave your business and staff exposed. With the Award Wage Service, you can subscribe to Awards to receive an email notification about changes to pay and entitlements that will help you stay compliant over time.

See below for the full list of Modern Awards you can subscribe to.
