This publication is a summary of the Clerks (Wholesale and Retail Establishments) Award (Clerks W&R Award).

On 19 December 2023 the Area and Scope clauses of the Clerks W&R Award were updated to expand the coverage of this WA award to a broader range of clerical employees and their employers. The key change to the coverage of the Clerks W&R Award is an update to the scope provisions so that the award applies to clerical employees working for any type of wholesale or retail establishment, regardless of the type of good being sold.

Visit the Changes to coverage of the Clerks Awards page for information on changes to the Clerks W&R Award and two other key clerical awards.
