What Employment Award do Landscape Architects fall under?

The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) is often asked by employers and employees what Employment Award is applicable for Landscape Architects.


AILA has received advice from the Fair Work Commission that qualified Landscape Architects are Award Free. The entitlements for award free employees come from the National Employment Standards (NES). Further information regarding the entitlements of award free employees can be viewed here:




Some AILA members have reported they use the information in the Architecture Award to help guide conditions. This can be done provided that the requirements of the Award Free NES are satisfied.


Additionally, AILA recently released a Census Report: Women in Landscape Architecture which provides a summary of salaries since 2001.
