Canberra business operators are continuing to breach their workplace obligations despite intervention from the Fair Work Ombudsman.

The Fair Work Ombudsman audited 80 businesses in the ACT region that had previously been found to be non-compliant with workplace laws and conducted follow-up audits to determine whether they had rectified their operations.

The Fair Work Ombudsman found that 40% of the businesses (32) re-audited remained non-compliant with workplace laws.

The businesses were audited to see if they were paying workers correctly and whether they were meeting their record-keeping and pay slip obligations.

Audits found:

20% of businesses (16) had breaches relating to pay rates;

14% of businesses (11) had breaches relating to record-keeping and pay slips; and

6% businesses (5) had breaches relating to pay rates and record-keeping / pay slips.

The campaign led to $31,087 being recovered on behalf of 120 workers with the Fair Work Ombudsman issuing 17 formal letters of caution, eight infringement notices (on-the-spot fines) and one compliance notice.

The Fair Work Ombudsman also initiated litigation against two local businesses.

One litigation has resulted in the former operators of Caf̩ on Benjamin in Belconnen РGlobal Trading and Investment Group Pty Ltd, and its former director Dr Nathem Al-Naser Рbeing penalised a total of $56,840 in the Federal Circuit Court after admitting they failed to keep employee records or issue pay slips to workers.
