Individual Flexibility Arrangements and the Annual Wage Review decision - are your wages still compliant?

The Fair Work Commission announced its Annual Wage Review decision and with effect from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2019, and Modern Award minimum wages increased by 3.0 per cent. 

NECA Legal reminds all employers who currently have entered into Individual Flexibility Arrangements (IFAs) that they have a responsibility to ensure the rate of pay is sufficient to leave the employee better off than if paid in accordance with the Award, or risk being fined for breaches of the Fair Work Act 2009.

NECA Legal can, for a nominal fee of $75 plus GST per IFA, undertake better-off-overall-test calculations to ensure that the pay rates under the IFA are sufficient and thereby preventing the risk of severe penalties.
