Should our pay have increased?

Post by SJayDee » Tue Jul 26, 2022 6:32 pm

So with the increase in minimum wage we were told our new pay wouldn’t come into effect until the next pay cycle (paid f/nightly) I’ve just received my payslip and I’m still being paid $29.86 (I’m a cert III casual who has held a cert III since 2012) when I checked the award it was about $33.
I just don’t want to go into work tomorrow and say I’ve been paid wrong without knowing if Im meant to have had a pay increase now that it’s the first complete pay cycle since the 1st July.

Thank you :)

Hi!

Yes, since it is the full pay circle from 01 July you should have been paid the 4.6% increase. You should just ask your employer and the 4.6% pay increase.
