The Fair Work Commission (FWC) has commenced the process of conducting the Annual Wage Review for 2021/2022. Traditionally, the Annual Wage Review has resulted in increases to Award wages from 1 July each year, however for 2020 and 2021 the implementation of the increases was delayed due to consideration of the impact of COVID-19 on the retail sector, including Newsagencies.
The FWC’s preparatory work includes the design of survey and other economic data requirements which will be considered by the Expert Panel appointed by the FWC.
