Understanding the terms of the Award and how it interacts with other employment legislation can be challenging due to the complex language used in these documents.

This course aims to explain the terms of the Award in a clear and concise way to ensure Local Governments are complying with employment legislation and providing employees with the correct employment entitlements.

Participants will undertake practical exercises throughout the course to assist them to apply the knowledge gained in the workplace, and provide information on the Award to employees and management.

Target Audience

Specifically developed for Local Government HR and payroll professionals who are responsible for ensuring the Local Government complies with the terms of the Local Government Industry Award 2020 industrial agreement, which became a new State instrument when Local Governments transitioned to the State industrial relations system on 1 January 2023.

This means this course is not suitable for those Local Governments operating in the State industrial relations system prior to 1 January 2023. This course is also not suitable for the Shire of Christmas Island and the Shire of Cocos (Keeling) Islands as they apply the Fair Work Act 2009.

Learning Outcomes

  • Interpret and calculate pay and entitlements contained within the Local Government Industry Award 2020 as a State Instrument; 
  • Understand how the Minimum Conditions of Employment Act 1993 (MCE Act), and the Industrial Relations Act 1979 (IR Act), interact with Local Government Industry Award 2020; and
  • Understand how employee entitlements to annual leave, personal / carer’s leave, long service leave, parental leave, bereavement leave, community service leave and public holidays accrue and are paid.
