Fair Work Commission

The Fair Work Commission has issued a range of updates ahead of the new financial year, including updated modern awards and application fee structures.

Employers have been advised that the 122 industry awards have been updated on the Commission’s website.

These updates reflect the increase to wages and allowances, including the 3 per cent rise in the minimum wage, that were handed down late last month.

In a separate alert, the Fair Work Commission noted that its fee structures are also set to rise, as they do at the beginning of each financial year to keep pace with inflation.

Application fees to consider dismissal, anti-bullying and general protections claims will rise to $73.20.

There will also be increases to unfair dismissal eligibility, with the threshold at which such claims can be lodged increasing to $148,700. That is up from the $145,400 that was set for the current financial year.

All of the changes are effective from next Monday, 1 July 2019.

Meanwhile, the limit on compensation allowed for dismissals will also rise, reaching $74,350 for dismissals that occur on or after 1 July.
