District Allowance Rate Adjustments for 2014
The Department of Commerce has issued Circular to Departments and Authorities No. 9 of 2014 detailing adjustments to the rates of District Allowances.
This Circular advises of adjustments to District Allowance rates under the District Allowance (Government Officers) General Agreement 2010 and the District Allowance (Government Wages Employees) General Agreement 2010.
The District Allowance rates are effective on and from the first pay period on or after 1 July 2014 unless otherwise specified.
Schedule A prescribes the rates for the District Allowance (Government Officers) General Agreement 2010 and apply to employees entitled to receive a district allowance under the following industrial agreements:
Schedule B prescribes the rates for the District Allowance (Government Wages Employees) General Agreement 2010 will apply to employees entitled to receive a district allowance under the following industrial agreements:
Given the significant reductions in District Allowance rates in some regional areas, a two-year transitional arrangement has been implemented to ensure those affected employees have sufficient time to make the necessary adjustments.
Employees who were engaged in the Kimberley, Pilbara or Karratha/Dampier prior to 15 April 2014 (and who continue to be employed in those localities) shall be paid the transitional District Allowance rate as provided in the Schedules to this Circular.
