State Wage Case 2017 adjourned, to be reconvened

The State Wage Case was heard on 18 May 2017 and will reconvene following the decision of the Fair Work Commission in its Annual Wage Review, the date of which is not yet known.  The State Wage case hearing will be webcast and can be viewed here.

The State Wage Case is held pursuant to section 50A of the Industrial Relations Act, 1979. This obliges the Commission before 1 July in each year to make a General Order setting the minimum wage under the Minimum Conditions of Employment Act, 1993 for employees over the age of 21, for apprentices and for trainees. The General Order also adjusts rates of wages paid under State awards. More information can be found here.
