Employment Legislation Changes – 1 April 2019

As of 1 April 2019:

  • The minimum wage rate for adults has increased from $16.50 to $17.70 gross per hour.
  • Employees who have completed 6 months continuous service with their current employer are entitled to 10 days of paid domestic violence leave per year. Please be aware that this is each year, so an onerous cost for a small employer.
