    Default A question for workplace relations/HR superstars!

    Hi,

    I am just wondering if an employer has a statutory obligation to increase wages in accordance to CPI or on an annual basis or anything along those lines. I am not covered by an award and my employment contract doesn't state anything along those lines but just wondered if it were something that is protected under either state or federal employment legislation. My previous employer paid us under an award so each year our pay point (ie. 4.1 to 4.2 etc) would go up and we also received the CPI increase.

    I should have been more on the ball when I started but I was desperate.

    I wouldnt have thought that they had to increase for CPI or annually. as long as it is more than the minimum wage and you are not covered under and award/EBA etc.
    I'm no expert, I just didnt get an increase last time due to same thing, not covered under award and nothing in contract.

    Nope - def no need for them to increase in line with CPI. Unless
    part of an award/agreement or explicitly stated in your contract it's at the employers discretion. No increase has to be given at all.
