New overtime entitlements for casual retail workers

The Fair Work Commission has introduced changes to overtime entitlements for casual employees working in the retail industry. Casual employees will now be entitled to overtime pay when they work:

  • over 38 hours per week, (averaged over a roster cycle)
  • outside the spread of ordinary hours (see clause 27.2)
  • over 11 hours on one day of the week and more than 9 hours on any of the other days.

The changes apply from the first full pay period starting on or after 1 January 2018.

Do the changes apply to me?

The changes apply to employers and employees who get their employment entitlements from the General Retail Industry Award 2010 (MA000004).

Where can I find the new rates?

We’re working on updating our pay tools with the new overtime rates. We’ll send you an email when the new rates are available.
