POSITIVE NEWS ON PENALTY RATES FOR SMALL BUSINESS It was very good news for Gold Coast businesses when the Federal Court upheld the decision of the independent Fair Work Commission on penalty rates this week. The Fair Work Commission sets award pay and conditions, including penalty rates, in the same way the Reserve Bank sets interest rates. They are an independent umpire.
