high income threshold

The high income threshold is an earnings level, beyond which an employee is no longer covered by the relevant award. This threshold is adjusted annually.

The high income threshold is a benchmark used to determine whether certain workplace protections and award conditions apply to an employee. When an employee's earnings exceed this threshold, they may not be entitled to the benefits and conditions outlined in their industry or occupation-specific award. The threshold amount is updated each year to reflect changes in the economy.
