As part of the four-yearly review of Modern Awards, there have been some clarification and plain-language changes to the following modern awards, which will apply from the first full pay period on or after 29 May 2020.

These awards include:

Clerks Award Contract Call Centres Award Educational Services (Schools) General Staff Award
Hospitality Award Local Government Award Manufacturing Award
Rail Award Restaurant Award Vehicle Award

You can access a copy of the updated modern awards through the Fair Work Commission website.

It’s important to remember that employers must ensure that an updated copy of the award/s for their workplace is available for employees to access, either through a staff notice board or other digital means.

Although the changes are likely to be minor in this instance, it’s still important to review the award for any changes, and provide access to the new award for your staff.
