Apprentice Wage Decision

Apprentice Wage Decision


The Fair Work Commission handed down a Transitional Decision on Apprentice wages and conditions yesterday, 22 August 2013. Some key outcomes of the review include:

  • The new rates of pay shall apply only to apprentices who commence their apprenticeship on or after 1 January 2014.
  • In relation to the variations dealing with apprentices conditions of employment, these variations shall apply to all Apprentices, regardless of commencement date, from 1 January 2014.

What does this mean for our Host Employers and Apprentices?

  • There is no immediate impact as any changes will apply from 1 January 2014.
  • For the majority of our Apprentices who are on enterprise agreements there will be no change.

The full decision by FWC can be found here.

We are developing a Q&A for our Host Employers and Apprentices which will be available shortly.
