Published below is the National Minimum Wage Order 2017 taking into account the Expert Panel's decision of 6 June 2017. The order comes into operation on 1 July 2017:
On 6 June 2017, the Expert Panel issued its Annual Wage Review 2016–17 Decision [ FWCFB 3500], which details the rates to be set in the national minimum wage order to take effect on 1 July 2017.
The Fair Work Act 2009 requires that the Expert Panel publish the national minimum wage order before 1 July 2017.
Below is the draft national minimum wage order that was released after the Expert Panel’s decision of 6 June 2017. The draft order has been amended and republished to provide clarity that an adult apprentice employed after 1 January 2014 must be paid a base rate of pay that at least equals the amount set out in clause 14.2—Apprentice minimum wages of the Miscellaneous Award 2010.
Any inquiries or suggested amendments regarding the draft order should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, 23 June 2017.
