Modern Award Changes


In February this year, a number of Modern Awards had been subject to language and layout variations as a part of the Fair Work Commission’s 4-yearly review of Modern Awards. These changes came into operation on 4th February, 13th April and 4th May 2020. You can access the new versions of these awards on the Modern awards list on the Fair Work Commission’s website.

A number of awards have been varied as part of the third tranche of awards, with the changes due to take effect on 29th May and 18th June 2020. Similar to the previous variations under the first and second tranche, the greatest changes will be to the layout and language used in the awards, in an attempt to make them simpler and easier to understand.
