Minimum Wage increase 1 April 2020

11 April 2020- 3 min read


The minimum wage increased on 1 April 2020 to $18.90 per hour.

While there had been pressure on the Government to delay the increase, that didn't happen. We have automatically increased employee rates to the minimum, but you do need to provide us with any other increases. e.g. if someone was $1 higher than minimum wage.
