Fair Work Inspectors will target 350 businesses throughout NSW, Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania and the ACT  to ensure that employers are complying with their record-keeping obligations under the Fair Work Act 2009.

The audits will include checks to ensure employers are keeping correct records and issuing pay slips that contain the required information.

In the past, The Fair Work Ombudsman has issued fines and taken legal action against employers who did not keep proper records and who were suspected of underpaying their staff.

In 2010, an Adelaide trolley collecting company and its director were fined $35,000 by the South Australian Industrial Relations Court and the operators of a Melbourne restaurant were penalised $10,000 in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court.

In both cases, the lack of records prohibited the Fair Work Ombudsman from determining whether large numbers of employees, suspected of being significantly underpaid, had received their full lawful entitlements.

Fair Work inspectors will ask employers selected for auditing to discuss their record-keeping and payslip practices, and where non-compliance is identified, compliance orders and fines may be issued.

Centres earmarked for visits include: NSW: Bathurst and Lithgow and the Blue Mountains region including Blackheath, Katoomba, Leura and Wentworth Falls; ACT: Canberra; Victoria: Port Fairy, Portland and Warrnambool; Queensland: Sunshine Coast including Caloundra, Maroochydore, Mooloolaba and Noosa and the Wide Bay region including Hervey Bay and Maryborough; Tasmania: Burnie, Devonport and Ulverstone.
