Indexation to Employee Entitlements

Employment Law

The High Income Threshold (HIT) and minimum wage increased from 1 July 2018. The HIT will be $145,400 (previously $142,000) and the minimum wage will be $18.93 per hour. These changes may have the effect of bringing some employees under the coverage of an award, and will also make available the jurisdiction of the unfair dismissal jurisdiction to some employees not previously covered.

As the parameters of various employment rights are regularly indexed, we recommend you seek advice from our Employment Law Team in the event of any dispute over wages, Award coverage, or unfair dismissal.
