New Clerks - Private Sector Award

New Clerks - Private Sector Award

After what seems to be an eternity, the Fair Work Commission has now completed its 4-year review of the Clerks-Private Sector Award 2010. The Clerks-Private Sector Award 2020  ('the Award') came into effect on 29 May 2020.

There have been numerous changes to the Award throughout the review process, about which REEF has notified you along the way.  These changes are now contained in the attached consolidated Award which is written in plain language.  Hopefully, this will make it easier to read and understand.


To satisfy your legal obligations and to avoid a potential $63,000 fine, you must ensure that a copy of the Award applicable to your clerical employees is made available to them.  

This means you must:

-    Provide them with a PDF copy of the Clerks Private Sector Award 2020
     
or

-    Email them a hyperlink to the Clerks Private Sector Award 2020
     https://www.fwc.gov.au/documents/documents/modern_awards/award/ma000002/default.htm

or

-    Make a hard copy available to them in a convenient location in your office

Lastlydon't forget to dispose of any existing copies of the predecessor Award.
