It was also proposed in the 2021-22 Budget to remove the $450 per month wage threshold for superannuation.  If this legistlation is passed this will mean superannuation will be payable for all eligible employees regardless of their monthly pay from 1 July 22.

Minimum Wage

Following the Annual Wage Review 2021, the Fair Work Commission has announced a 2.5% increase to minimum wages. This will also apply to all award wages, with the award increase happening in 3 different stages.
