Changes to Pay for Casuals on Retail Award - Penalty Rates

Tony Perkins - Wednesday, September 25, 2019

On 1 October 2019, the penalty rates for casuals employed under the General Retail Industry Award will change.

These latest changes are a continuation of the "phasing in" of changes made to the award as a result of a decision handed down by the Fair Work Commission in September 2018.

From 1 October 2019, the penalty rates for casuals (other than shift workers) will change for evening work and Saturday work to the following:

  • Evening Work (Monday to Friday) - 135% of the applicable base rate
  • Saturday Work - 145% of the applicable base rate
We advise all employers within the Retail Industry to check their payroll and timekeeping systems to ensure the correct rates are paid are required by these changes.
