The Fair Work Ombudsman is targeting businesses in Queensland’s Wide Bay Region to ensure employers are complying with Australian employment laws.
Fair Work Inspectors will audit farms, labour hire contractors and accommodation providers in and around the major towns of Bundaberg, Mundubbera and Childers.
Fair Work inspectors will check that employers are complying with their legal obligations. Including paying employees their lawful minimum wages and entitlements under the Fair Work Act, National Employment Standards and relevant Modern Awards.
Inspectors will also check compliance with record-keeping and pay-slip obligations.
Employers who fail to comply with their legal obligations under Australian employment laws risk big penalties, expensive back-pay orders and damaging employee claims. Individuals also risk personal fines for accessorial liability.
