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.
These pay tables apply to organisations in WA that are Constitutional (Trading) Corporations and who are in the Federal industrial relations system. Organisations that are NOT Constitutional Trading Corporations are covered by the Social and Community Services (Western Australia) Interim Award which has a different pay table. Please read our guide Is your Organisation a Constitutional Corporation if you are uncertain about whether or not your organisation is a Constitutional Trading Corporation.
This pay table applies to all employees (regardless of their commencement date) where the SACS WA Award would have 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.
