Awards are a set of rules that govern how you pay employees of different levels of skill, tenure, industry and many other factors based upon their time worked. Fair Work is the government body in Australia that sets out the different award conditions. Some employers pay employees based on the rules of these awards and other employers pay employees using other schemes.
If you pay your employees based on an award, you can install a pre-built award rule set into your payroll platform and apply those award rules to certain employees. The application of awards here helps you streamline your payroll process, as your payroll platform will use the award rule-sets to calculate each employee's wage and entitlements automatically.
