Fair Work Inspectors target Fortitude Valley

The Fair Work Ombudsman is targeting restaurants, bars and cafes in Fortitude Valley as part of unannounced audits of a popular casual dining precinct in Brisbane.

Fair Work Inspectors are checking that employers are paying the correct minimum hourly rates, penalty rates, allowances and loadings and providing appropriate meal breaks.

Compliance with record-keeping and pay-slip obligations is also being checked.

Do you know your legal obligations?

Most businesses – including small businesses – are now covered by the Fair Work Act 2009.

Fair Work Inspectors appointed the Fair Work Ombudsman have the power to enter a workplace at any time to inspect records and ensure compliance.

Employers risk penalties of up to $54,000 for each breach of the Fair Work Act 2009.
