Updated pay rates

The start of the financial year is a great time to spend some time reviewing where you are at with your employees, including updating payrates.

The updated Pastoral Award rates were released on 29 June – these rates set the minimum amount payable for nearly all staff on-farm and apply from the first full pay period on or after 1 July.

For example, if your pay week is Monday to Sunday, the new minimum wages start to apply from Monday 4 July. If your employees are paid through an Individual Flexibility Agreement or Annualised Salary, the rate used to calculate these should also be updated.

Visit the People in Dairy website to learn more about new pay rates from 1 July 2022.
