Introduction

An employee's minimum pay rate can come from an award, enterprise agreement, other registered agreement, or the national minimum wage. 

Employees must be paid for all the hours they work including the time they spend in training, team meetings, opening and closing the business, and working unreasonable trial shifts.

If you're an employee or an employer, you can find out about:

  • pay rates

  • minimum wages

  • deducting pay and overpayments
  • tax and superannuation
  • payslips and record-keeping

  • pay during stand down and severe weather.

Workplace rights and responsibilities are managed by the Fair Work Ombudsman.
