Ai Group Annotated Modern Awards

Ai Group’s Annotated Modern Awards provide comprehensive explanations and interpretations relating to many award clauses. The additional explanations, interpretations and guidance notes they offer – above and beyond the complex and often confusing official publications of the Fair Work Commission (FWC) – are designed to help you and your business correctly interpret and apply the award in your workplace, ensuring your obligations are met.

Two formats

You can purchase an Annotated Award in two formats: digital and hardcopy.


Our digital Annotated Awards are conveniently available to access and download at any time via My Awards in the My Membership section of this website.

The purchase of a digital Annotated Award includes a free subscription to all updates for the financial year in which it was bought.


Hardcopy Annotated Awards are provided as loose leaf pages in an A5 binder. The purchase price includes postage and handling.

With every purchase of a hardcopy Annotated Award, you receive free access to the corresponding digital Annotated Award for the financial year in which the hardcopy was bought.

You also receive a free subscription to the hardcopy updating service for the financial year.

Annual subscriptions

Our convenient annual subscriptions will ensure that your Annotated Modern Award is kept up to date.


Our digital Annotated Awards are updated whenever the FWC releases a determination. During your subscription period, we will alert you of these updates via email, and provide a link to your Annotated Award at My Awards in the My Membership section of this website.


Updates for hardcopy Annotated Awards are provided once a year, around August/September, following the FWC annual wage decision. We mail you the pages that have changed.

In May 2024 we will invoice you an invitation to continue your updating subscription into the 2024/25 financial year.
