QUICK TIP: Make sure you are paying your staff correctly

Wage theft has been in the news a lot recently. 

In a bid to stamp it out the Fair Work Ombudsman has outlined its priorities for the 2019/20 financial year. Its new focus will include:

  • Fast food, restaurants and cafes
  • Horticulture and the harvest trail
  • Supply chain risks
  • Franchisors
  • Sham contracting

Signalling that the regulator takes the issue of underpayment seriously, Fair Work Ombudsman Sandra Parker offers a straightforward warning to employers.

“If you are in one of our priority industries, operate a franchise system or employ large numbers of migrant workers, you should expect to hear from us.”
