Update , It is only if your a desperate for a Job . If the company has a Enterprise Bargaining Agreement then you get paid by that. If no Agreement then your paid by the Security Services Industry Award 2010 from 1st July 2019
Level 1 Security Officer Casual Hourly Rate: $27.38  Sat: $38.33 Sun: $49.28 Public Holiday :$60.23  Night span Mon to Fri :$32.13 Permanent night work Mon to Fri :$33.95  Overtime - Mon to Fri - First 2 hrs $32.85

So if your getting less than these rates. Your should be speaking to your Boss.

Not sure if anyone has asked this this year 2019. 

Is a Flat rate legal to do, I worked for they do Flat rates for $28 Award is $27.74 same as another i worked for paid a flat rate of the Award only $27.74 

I haven't signed any contract that say I get only the flat rate. I have asked for the assistance of Fair work Ombudsman  to help me. They are currently sorting out my last employer who didn't pay the award rate for working from 6pm to 6am, Sunday work and Public Holidays.  I'm owed a few thousand.
