As an employer, you must pay your employees at the correct rate, as well as any entitlements they are eligible for. This includes parental leave, sick leave or overtime rates.
The wages and entitlements your employee is eligible for can depend on:
- their age
- the state they’re in
- your industry
- their qualifications
- their work duties and responsibilities.
To help you work out what you need to pay your employees, the Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) has created PayCheck Plus. You can use this online tool to calculate modern award pay rates for your employees, including:
- base pay rates
- overtime and penalty rates
- pay rates per hour
- pay rates for entire shifts.
