Submissions to the Annual Wage Review 2020–21 will be published on this website when received.
However, if a submission made by a person or body includes information that is claimed to be confidential or commercially sensitive, and the Commission is satisfied that the information is confidential or commercially sensitive, the Commission:
- may decide not to publish the information, and
- may instead publish:
- a summary of the information which contains sufficient detail to allow a reasonable understanding of the substance of the information (without disclosing anything that is confidential or commercially sensitive), or
- if the Commission considers that it is not practicable to prepare a summary that would comply with subparagraph (i) – a statement that confidential or commercially sensitive information in the submission has not been published.
