Frequently asked questions

  • What is award interpretation?

    Award Interpretation is the process of calculating the minimum legal amount of pay for hours worked, during a specific period of time, based on the relevant legal agreement — this legal agreement is usually called an 'award' or ‘modern award’. The calculation process involves assessment of base hourly pay rates, overtime pay rates, penalty pay rates, and allowances.

  • What is a modern award?

    A modern award sets out the minimum employment terms and conditions that an employer must comply with — on top of the National Employment Standards (NES). They include minimum wages, overtime and penalty rates, allowances, breaks, and hours of work. There are numerous awards that are specific to different industries and occupations.

  • Which award applies to me?

    Check the Fair Work website for guidance on which award applies to you. It’s also important to note that a business can be subject to more than one award depending on the different jobs their employees do.
