Fair Work Ombudsman launches new wages tool

Written on the 27 August 2015

The Fair Work Ombudsman now has a mobile-friendly pay tool to give employers and employees access to reliable advice on wages and entitlements on-the-go.  

The Pay and Conditions Tool (PACT) combines pay, shift and leave calculators with an intuitive interface for mobile devices.  

It can locate the correct Modern Award for an employee's position and quickly determine what wages apply, including any overtime, penalty rates or allowances payable.  

Users who go to www.calculate.fairwork.gov.au can work out wages per hour, per shift or for an entire pay period.  

PACT can also determine the entitlements payable when employees resign or are terminated, including wages in lieu of notice, leave and redundancy pay.   

It is linked to another online tool, My Account, which enables employers and employees to save the advice they receive and review it at any time.  

Information and advice can also be sent to a customer's My Account if they submit an inquiry to the Fair Work Ombudsman or call the Fair Work Infoline for assistance.
