CHANGES TO PENALTY RATES DECISION MADE BY THE FAIR WORK COMMISSION DOES NOT APPLY TO THE HAIR & BEAUTY INDUSTRY
The Fair Work Commission on the 23rd of February announced that Sunday penalty rates paid in retail, fast food, hospitality and pharmacy industries will be reduced from the existing levels, which, in some cases, are as much as “double time”.
Please note that today’s decision from the Fair Work Commission in respect to Penalty Rates and the proposed cut to the Sunday Penalty Rate DOES NOT apply to our Industry.
The Fair Work Commission has decided in today’s decision that:
The Hair and Beauty Industry Award 2010 was the subject of a claim to reduce Sunday penalty rates, by ABL, which was originally part of these proceedings. In correspondence dated 14 September 2016 ABL stated that its claim in respect of this award was no longer pressed.
The existing rates appear to raise issues about the level of the Sunday penalty rate and the penalty rates applicable to casual employees.
It is appropriate that these rates be reviewed.
The Full Bench seeks expressions of interest from employer organisations prepared to take on the proponent role.
Any such expressions of interest should be filed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 4.00 pm Friday, 24 March 2017.
The Full Bench assumes that the SDA will appear as contradictor in any subsequent proceedings.
The matter will be listed for mention on Tuesday, 28 March 2017, and HABA will be sure to advise our members of any changes at that time.
Please note that HABA are very seriously considering the matter and will advise all members about the next step in these proceedings.
