Location allowance increases for regional employees

Many WA awards require employees to be paid a location allowance when employed in certain regional towns.

Location allowances have just been increased by the 2021 Location Allowance General Order, and new rates take effect from the first pay period on or after 1 July 2021.

The new rates for each town and a list of the relevant WA awards are available on the Location Allowance for employees in regional areas page.
