About Wageline's WA award summaries

  • In the state system, many employees are covered by a WA award. WA awards are legal documents that outline legal pay rates, allowances, working hours, and leave entitlements for employees in a particular industry or type of work. 
  • If an employee is covered by a WA award, the pay rates, leave entitlements, allowances and penalty rates (such as higher pay for working on the weekend or a public holiday) outlined in the WA award must be provided to the employee, and it is unlawful to provide pay rates or leave conditions below the WA award provisions. 
  • Each WA award summary provides information on page 2 on what industries and occupations the WA award covers, however award coverage is a complex issue. If you are unsure if a WA award applies to you or your business, visit the WA awards for common jobs page or contact Wageline to assist in determining likely award coverage. 
  • Wageline's WA award summaries provide pay rates and an overview of employment conditions (such as hours of work, penalty rates, overtime rates and leave provisions) for key WA awards. 
  • Visit the Minimum pay rates for award free employees page for pay rates and employment conditions if the employee is award free.
