Changes to the Pastoral Award 2010
The Pastoral Award 2010 has been varied to enable employers and employees to agree in writing for the employee to be paid an annualised wage or a salary instead of being paid an hourly rate, as of the first full pay period commencing on or after 1 March 2020. This arrangement might suit some employers, but may also require changes in the way timesheets and records are kept.
We are aware that some producers may be experiencing difficulty in implementing the new requirements.
APL will be hosting a webinar information session and Q&A with National Farmers Federation’s General Manager of Workplace Relations and Legal Affairs, Mr Ben Rogers, on Tuesday 5 May, from 2:00-3:00pm.
To help target the session to producer needs, we would be grateful if you could also provide an indication of the topics you would like to cover and/or any specific questions for Mr Rogers related to the annualised salaries provisions.
Update: Webinar recording now available.
