Changing modern awards
Existing awards are being changed extensively as a result of the 4 yearly review of modern awards. Some awards are also being rewritten using plain language principles, to make them easier to understand and use.
Most modern awards have already been changed, and are now available from the Modern awards list below. Awards that have been changed can be identified by the year 2020 in their title.
