MODERN AWARDSProviding Business tools for the Australian Building and Construction Industry to assist Developers, Builders, Owner Builders and Tradespeople
The minimum wages and conditions an employee is entitled to are set out in awards (also known as modern awards). Awards don’t apply when a business has an enterprise agreement or other registered agreement and the employee is covered by it.
Every award has information about who is covered by it. To work out which award applies, read:
- the coverage clause (usually clause 4)
- the job classifications (usually in the pay section or a schedule).
