As a disability and community care provider, it is important to keep track of your employer obligations under the SCHADS Award, to ensure that you are paying staff the correct entitlements and mitigating the risk of a breach. The penalties for underpaying staff have never been higher, even if the infringement is an honest mistake.
The Social, Community, HomeCare and Disability Services Industry Award 2010 (MA000100) (SCHADS Award) details the rates of pay for each level and each pay point for employees working in the social and community services sector. Consisting of over 100 pages of terms and conditions, the SCHADS Award is one of Australia’s most complex modern awards to decipher and implement correctly.
