When does the Fitness Industry Award increase?
The Fitness Industry Award increases from 1 February 2021 as part of Group 3. See here
Fitness Australia will release the Award increase wage tables as they become available.
The Fair Work Commission has announced a 1.75% increase to minimum wages. This will apply to all award wages.
Increases to awards will start on 3 different dates for different groups of awards.
Most employees are covered by an award. If you’re not sure which award applies, use Find my award.
For anyone not covered by an award or an agreement, the new National Minimum Wage will be $753.80 per week or $19.84 per hour. This applies from the first full pay period starting on or after 1 July 2020.
You can read the detailed decision on the Fair Work Commission’s website.
Who does the increase apply to?
The increase only applies to employees that get their pay rates from:
- the National Minimum Wage
- an award, or
- a registered agreement (in some cases).
Interaction with the JobKeeper payment
The new minimum wage also applies to any work an employee performs while they're in the JobKeeper scheme, if they get their pay rate from an award or the National Minimum Wage. See JobKeeper and the Annual Wage Review 2020 and the JobKeeper wage subsidy scheme on the Fair Work website for more information.
