#175 Changes to modern awards – important information for medical practices


11 June 2020

The Fair Work Commission (FWC) has been reviewing all modern awards as part of its four-yearly review process and has confirmed that new awards will start taking effect on different dates throughout 2020.

For practices employing staff under the Health Professionals and Support Services Award 2010, please note the FWC has determined the new award comes into effect from the first full pay period commencing on or after 18 June 2020. Practices need to be aware of the substantial changes to the award layout and structure.  

A copy of the new Health Professionals and Support Services Award 2020 will soon be uploaded to the member-only area of the AMA Victoria website for access by Award Service Subscribers. The online subscriber service has replaced the manual paper format.  Please recycle any old paper formats you may still have, as they will be out of date.  

If you need assistance with logging into the website, please call AMA Victoria membership services on (03) 9280 8722 or email membership@amavic.com.au

For further information and assistance on any aspect of your employment obligations, or to renew or subscribe to our Award Subscriber Service, please call the AMA Victoria Workplace Relations Team on (03) 9280 8722.

Please ensure you advise your Practice Manager of these important changes.
