On 1 June 2012, the Minimum Wage Panel issued its Annual Wage Review 2011–12 Decision which detailed the rates to be set in the national minimum wage order to take effect on 1 July 2012.
The Fair Work Act 2009 requires that the Minimum Wage Panel publish before 1 July 2012 the national minimum wage order set by the Panel. Published below is the draft national minimum wage order that was released after the Panel’s decision of 1 June 2012. The order has been published to allow persons and bodies the opportunity to review the rates. Any suggested amendments regarding the draft order should be given by 15 June 2012 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Inquiries can be directed to 1800 779 682.
The final order, incorporating any additional changes as the result of suggested amendments, will be published on the Fair Work Australia website prior to 1 July 2012.
