Modern Awards

The Fair Work Commission may make, vary and revoke modern awards as contemplated by the FW Act. The framework of a modern award combined with the National Employment Standards is about providing a fair and minimum safety net of terms and conditions of employment for employees governed by a modern award as contemplated by the FW Act, which includes provisions in the award dealing with minimum wages.
