19/10/2018Awards

As a result of a recent decision by the Fair Work Commission, from the First Full Pay Period on or after 1 November 2018, 89 awards will have a model clause inserted into them prescribing that upon termination, an employee must be paid all of their entitlements within 7 days. 

A further 33 awards are pending another decision from the Fair Work Commission which will be determined at a later point in time.

This is unlikely to significantly impact many businesses, except those who process their payroll on a fortnightly cycle or monthly paid salaried employees.  

In these circumstances, employers cannot wait for their regular next available pay run and must process an out of cycle pay run within 7 days of an employee’s termination in order to comply with Award.

An example of the model clause can be seen here.

If you have any questions about how this may impact your business, do not hesitate to contact ER Strategies on 1300 55 66 37 for more information.
