2019 wage announcement

30 May 2019

The Fair Work Commission Minimum Wage Panel has handed down its 2019 minimum wage ruling.

From the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2019 the national minimum wage will increase by $21.60 per week or 57 cents per hour (on the basis of a 38-hour week). This represents a rise of 3% from the current national minimum wage of $719.20 per week.

The national minimum wage will now be $740.80 per week or $19.49 per hour.

A 3% increase will also flow on to Modern Award rates.

To help you get the change implemented into your business, our first round of 2019 wage circulars will be available in the coming weeks.
