The Fair Work Ombudsman is making surprise visits to restaurants, cafes and fast food outlets in popular food precincts around Darwin this week to check compliance with workplace laws.
Across 22 suburbs, including Darwin City, Casuarina and Palmerston City, around 50 businesses face audits, with Fair Work Inspectors speaking with business owners, managers and employees on the ground to make sure that workers are being paid correctly.
The regulator is acting after receiving intelligence from a range of sources, including anonymous reports indicating potential underpayments by employers in the areas.
