There is a proposal before the Fair Work Commission from the Shops, Distributive and Allied Employees Association (SDA) that under the current review of the Hair and Beauty Industry Award, the casual loading of 25% apply to the current weekend penalty rates:
This is what the SDA are proposing:
18. The SDA is seeking the full casual loading for such employees at all times which incur penalty rates.
Below is the current clause under the Hair and Beauty Award, should this proposal be accepted, changes are written in bold:
31.2 Overtime and Penalty Rates
b) Saturday work
A loading of 33% will apply for ordinary hours of work for full-time and part-time employees within the span of hours on a Saturday. A loading of 58% will apply for ordinary hours of work for casual employees within the span of hours on a Saturday.
c) Sunday work
A 100% loading will apply for all hours of work for full-time and part-time employees on a Sunday. A 125% loading will apply for all hours of work for casual employees on a Sunday.

These loadings have not been accepted but be assured HABA has our fingers firmly on the pulse and will lobby government to have your industry voice heard. Send us your thoughts and how this loading would affect your salon and your wage costs.
