New overtime entitlements for casual fast food workers

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

  • over 38 hours per week, or more than 38 hours a week averaged over a roster cycle
  • more than 11 hours in a day.

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 entitlements from the Fast Food Industry Award 2010 (MA000003).

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.
