Wageline provides information on State private sector awards, agreements and legislation. Wageline cannot provide information on wages and conditions for those under the federal system.

While it is possible that our department may be able to address your enquiry, in some instances we may need to refer you to the relevant agency.


Step 4: If this enquiry relates to an employee, is the employee covered by an Australian Workplace Agreement (AWA) that has been registered with the Workplace Authority?

If you are unsure and would like to check whether an AWA has been lodged, please contact the Workplace Infoline on 1300 363 264.
