We have only listed information about NSW historical awards in this guide.
Before 2010, most awards were covered by the NSW state award system. These awards were administered by NSW Industrial Relations. In this guide we refer to these as historical awards. After 1 January 2010, most of these awards were streamlined into modern awards administered by Fair Work Australia.
