Overtime rates for retail and other industries, effective 1 Jan 2018

November 27, 2017

In July 2017, the Fair Work Commission determined that the:

  • Fast Food Industry Award 2010;
  • General Retail Industry Award 2010;
  • Hair and Beauty Industry Award 2010;
  • Restaurant Industry Award 2010;

would be varied to extend overtime loadings to casual employees, not just permanent employees.

On Friday 24 November 2017, the Commission decided that this entitlement for casuals is to start on 1 January 2018.

NRA will be updating its Award wage summaries to incorporate these changes when they come into effect on 1 January 2018. All members are advised to keep a close eye on the member portal for updates.

If you outsource your payroll to a bookkeeper or an accountant, make sure that they are aware of this change.

NRA will be sending the updated wage summaries to all members as soon as they become available.
