The former operator of an  Alice Springs café has been fined for record-keeping failures discovered during a Fair Work Ombudsman campaign.

The Federal Circuit Court in Darwin has imposed a $1500 penalty against Christopher Brandso, who until June, operated the Red Dog Café in the Todd Mall in partnership with his wife.

Fair Work inspectors randomly audited the café last year as part of proactive efforts to ensure Alice Springs businesses are paying employees their full entitlements.

Legal action was initiated after Brandso ignored repeated requests from inspectors to provide employment records.

He then admitted his business had failed to keep any.

In addition to the penalty, the Court ordered Brandso to complete training in relevant employment law for hiring employees and provide the Fair Work Ombudsman with evidence of having done so.
