Aged Care/Disability Pay Boost for Casuals
Friday 19 Jun 2020
Late last year the HSU secured a 25% casual loading in addition to penalty rates for working on weekends and public holidays for all casual workers in aged, social and community services.
This change comes into effect on 1 July 2020.
For the average aged care worker this equates to an hourly pay increase of $5.56, whilst the average disability worker will see an increase of $6.69 per hour.
This is a fantastic win for tens of thousands of the lowest paid workers in the country who do invaluable work supporting some of the most vulnerable Australian citizens.
