Award coverage for pharmacy assistants employed by businesses in the state industrial relations system has long been a complex and contested issue.
On 3 May 2021, the Western Australian Industrial Appeal Court issued a decision determining that the state Shop and Warehouse (Wholesale and Retail Establishments) Award does cover pharmacy assistants. This decision is available on the WA Industrial Relations Commission website.
Information about the current pay rates and entitlements for pharmacy assistants under the Shop and Warehouse Award is available on the WA award summaries page of the Wageline website.
