Penalty Rates Test Transitional Arrangements

by

On 5 June 2017 the Fair Work Commission issued the decision finalising the transitional arrangements for the reductions in penalty rates. The reductions in Sunday penalty rates will be phased in, implementing on 1 July of each year, at the same time as the implementation of increases from the Annual Wage Review decision.

The public holiday penalty rates will take effect from 1 July 2017 without any transitional arrangements.

The following changes are set out below.
