Survey of CHSP Providers regarding Employee Salary Costs and Employee Occupations

The Fair Work Commission is currently considering applications to increase minimum award wages for the aged care sector.  The Australian Government has supported these applications with a submission to the Fair Work Commission and committed to providing additional support to aged care providers to assist with meeting the increased costs of delivering care that may arise from a decision in this case.

To support this process, the Department of Health and Aged Care is conducting further research to understand current wage costs under certain awards across each CHSP provider.

This survey collects information on wage costs for:

  • Nurses Award
  • SCHADS Award
  • National Minimum Wage
  • Other Awards


  • Contracted Service Providers


  • Aged Care
