The first pay table sets out the rates of pay and allowances that apply from the first full pay period commencing on or after 1 July 2021. This was due to the final Equal Remuneration Order installment.

Classifications from the pre-modern DS NT award have been translated to the modern SCHCADS award classifications. Please note that these translations are only indicative of the most likely translations. Other outcomes may also be possible depending on the precise duties of a position, but seek further advice if you think that is the case for your organisation.

In line with the transitional rates as set out at paragraph 5.3 and 5.4 of the Equal Remuneration Order, the rates presented in this pay table are generally the higher of either the pre-modern DS NT or SCHCADS rates with the inclusion of the annual wage increase, and include the ERO multiplier.

This pay table applies to all employees (regardless of their commencement date) where the DS NT Award previously applied.

Workplace Agreements: Where an enterprise agreement is in place, this pay table will only apply where the pay rates in the agreement fall below those in this pay table.

The first pay table sets out the rates of pay and allowances that apply from the first full pay period commencing on or after 1 July 2021. This was due to the 2020-2021 Minimum Wage Increase of 2.5%.

Please note that with the final instalment of the Equal Remuneration Order on 1 December 2020 and the Minimum Wage Increase, all states are now in line with the SCHADS Modern Award, except level 1 SACS employee’s. 

Employers with level 1 SACS Employee’s please refer to your States 1 December ERO pay table to confirm if an increase has occurred as at 1 July 2021. If the 2021 rate is lower than the 1 December 2020, the higher rate will be frozen until the next Minimum Wage Review. This is due to level 1 employee’s being exempt from the ERO.

Both the 1 December 2020 ERO increase and 1 July 2021 Minimum Wage Increase tables can be found below.

Workplace Agreements: Where an enterprise agreement is in place, this pay table will only apply where the pay rates in the agreement fall below those in this pay table.
