Tanda’s built in award interpreter automatically calculates award rates for staff, calculating their gross pay and ensuring you’re always up-to-date with your industry award.
Award Interpretation is the process of interpreting awards set by Fair Work. Award rates dictate the amount an individual should be paid for their work. Factors such as total hours worked, penalty rates, specific time periods and special duties, must all be accounted when interpreting and calculating award rates.
Tanda’s Award Interpretation software doesn't just calculate staff pay, it visually shows you the breakdown! It reduces the burden for companies to know the ins & outs of their Modern Award or Enterprise Agreement by automatically managing these for you.
