An Equal Remununeration Order (ERO) currently applies to employees classified in the Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Services Industry Award 2010 as either Social and Community Services employees or Crisis accommodation employees.
The ERO arose from the SACS Equal Pay Case which was determined by Fair Work Commission in 2012. In practice this means that the phasing in arrangements for Social and Community Services Employees and Crisis Accommodation Employees continues until 2020. Wage increases are added to the higher of either the pre-modern award classification rates or the equivalent modern award rates. The first phase of increases under the ERO came into effect from the first full pay period on or after 1 December 2012. This will continue each December with the final installment due in 2020. Federal minimum wage increases will also apply each July.
