Do we have to pay a first aid allowance?

Does an employer need to pay a first aid allowance to a non-award employee who is paid above award rates?

An employee will not be entitled to a first aid allowance if they are not covered by an award or enterprise agreement that stipulates an entitlement to a first aid allowance. This is because an entitlement to a first aid allowance does not exist under the National Employment Standards.
