State wage cases

Under section 458 of the Industrial Relations Act 2016 (s287 of the repealed Industrial Relations Act 1999), the Full Bench may make General Rulings about industrial matters for employees bound by industrial instruments, and about general employment conditions. The State Wage Case, for employees covered by industrial instruments, has been commenced by an application for a general ruling in recent years. Section 458(2) of the Industrial Relations Act 2016 (s287(2) of the repealed Industrial Relations Act 1999) also requires that a general ruling be made each year about a Queensland Minimum Wage for all employees.
