Recently the Fair Work Commission made a decision that NEW annualised salary provisions will be applied to a range of Modern Awards, commencing 1st March 2020 onwards. This change means, if your employee (s) is covered by an applicable award, your obligations for paying employee salaries are also going to change.
Recently there was a lot of publicity about the Federal Court case in which a casual was awarded back payment for Annual and Personal Leave. This led to concern that all casual employees could potentially ‘double dip’ and receive highly hourly rates as well as leave entitlements. There was a lot of press about this and many of our clients were extremely concerned about cost spiralling out of control.
