Fair Work CommissionMember Blog

The Fair Work Commission (FWC) has just handed down a decision varying the Building and Construction General On-site Award 2010 (“the Award”). The variation will result in an increased industry allowance, with majority of the Award disability allowances abolished. For the first time, the Award’s industry allowance will distinguish between “residential building and construction” on the one hand and all other forms of building on the other.
