General Retail Industry Award Wage Increased by 2.5% As Of 1 September 2021

As you would have seen in our previous annual wage increase article published in June, the Fair Work Commission announced that it would be rolling out its annual wage increase in stages as a knock on effect of the previous staged increases at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On 1 September 2021 the minimum wages contained in the General Retail Industry Award increased by 2.5% as part of this staged rollout. Employers in the retail industry should ensure that they appropriately review their staff wages and not delay in actioning this increase.
