We have implemented 4 versions of the Restaurant Industry Award, also known as the RIA award. The versions includes both the Pre & Post July 2017, Post 2018 and the 1 July 2019 version.

The rationale behind the different versions is due to the FairWork updates on the 1st of July. One will be incorporating the new penalty cuts to comply with new penalty rate cuts and the older versions will remain same, it will still be compliant but for employers that don’t want to pay their employees the updated penalty loadings as per FairWork they may use the older versions.
