The changes to state employment laws introduced by the Industrial Relations Legislation Amendment Act 2021 will commence on Monday 20 June 2022.

The content of the Wageline website, including the WA award summaries, will shortly be updated to incorporate the changes to state employment law and new employer obligations and employee entitlements.

One key change is that domestic workers employed by household employers (people who directly employ someone to provide domestic services in their home) will be entitled to an expanded range of minimum employment protections. Visit the Household Employers page for details.

The provisions of the Industrial Relations Legislation Amendment Act making Easter Sunday a public holiday commenced on 12 February 2022.
