Installing Awards

Hi there,

I am trying to install Awards (Retail (General) Industry Award 2010 [MA000004] specifically) for my business using the API but I cannot find any documentation about it here.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!



Hi Eamon,

We don’t currently have the ability to install an award via the API. Would you please be able to elaborate on your use case and why you would need to do so?


Thanks for the reply Paul! I am creating employees through the API and want to set their pay rates, eg:

“PayRateTemplate”: “General Retail Casual L2 21yrs & over”,
“PayConditionRuleSet”: “General Retail Casual Non-Shift-Workers”,
“EmploymentAgreement”: “General Retail Level 2 - Casual”,

Obviously I get an error when I try to do this because I have not set any awards or pay templates. Would I just have to use POST{businessId}/payratetemplate?

Hey Eamon,

Typically, there is an amount of business setup that happens through the UI. Installing an award is one such thing.

Once the award is installed, you ought to be able to create employees through the API and have them associated with the award.

Okay, thanks for your help, Paul.

Is there any chance Award Instalment functionality will ever be added to the API?
