Fair Work Commission

Date and Time - TBA

In mid-2020 the Fair Work Commission started working with ABSIA and our members alongside the ATO on how the industry could potentially use their recently created Modern Awards Pay Database (MAPD). With continued work between the Commission and the industry, Fair Work Commission will provide an update on the MAPD and the API that is being developed.
