Pay and Leave


1. Pay


An employee’s minimum pay rate can come from an award, enterprise agreement or other registered agreement or the national minimum wage.

Employees have to be paid the right pay for all time worked, including time spent:

  • In training
  • In team meetings
  • Opening and closing the business
  • Working unreasonable trial shifts

The Fair Work website has information about minimum wages, penalty rates and allowances along with free online training, templates and guides to assist you. To find out more visit Fair Work


2. Leave

Employees can take leave for many reasons, including: to go on a holiday, because they are sick or to take care of sick family members.

To assist employers to find the right leave entitlements for their employees a Leave Calculator is available at: Fair Work - Leave
