    (4) Unless otherwise provided in this clause adults employed as casuals, part-time employees or piece

    workers or employees who are remunerated wholly on the basis of payment by result shall not be paid

    less than pro rata the minimum adult award wage according to the hours worked.

    (5) Employees under the age of 21 shall be paid no less than the wage determined by applying the

    percentage prescribed in the junior rates provision in this award to the minimum adult award wage.

    (6) The minimum adult award wage shall not apply to apprentices, employees engaged on traineeships or

    Jobskill placements or employed under the Commonwealth Government Supported Wage System or to other categories of employees who by prescription are paid less than the minimum award rate, provided

    that no employee shall be paid less than any applicable minimum rate of pay prescribed by the

    (9) Minimum Adult Award Wage

    The rates of pay in this award include the minimum weekly wage for employees aged 21 or more

    payable under the 2011 State Wage order decision. Any increase arising from the insertion of the minimum wage will be offset against any equivalent amount in rates of pay received by employees

    whose wages and conditions of employment are regulated by this award which are above the wage

    rates prescribed in the award. Such above award payments include wages payable pursuant to

    enterprise agreements, consent awards or award variations to give effect to enterprise agreements and

    over award arrangements. Absorption which is contrary to the terms of an agreement is not required.

    superannuation and during any period of paid leave prescribed by this award.

    ordinary rate of pay, it shall be calculated upon the rate prescribed in this award for the actual

    year of apprenticeship.

    (d) Nothing in this clause shall operate to reduce the rate of pay fixed by the award for an adult

    apprentice in force immediately prior to 5 June 2003.
