About Industry Awards
What industry award do I fall under? What is my pay rate?
Awards are documents that describe the conditions of employment – this includes a lot of information from parental leave to meal allowances and rates of pay. There may be a number of awards and/or enterprise agreements that apply to your employment.
The Fair Work Ombudsman have created an interactive tool to help you calculate pay rates set by the appropriate award.
If you work within a hospital setting or public sector, it is likely that you will fall under a state-based award.
