Staff Wages

Minimum Rates of Pay

The Fair Work Commission has increased award rates by 2.4%.  The increase takes effect from the first pay period commencing on or after 1 July 2016.

This is an increase to the minimum wages contained in the Health Professional and Support Services and Nurses Awards.

If you run a private practice, you will need to ensure you are paying staff above the new minimum rates. Practices are not required to increase rates of pay, unless they fall below the minimum award rates.

Members are able to use their login details to access a condensed version of the rates.
