Fair Work Inspectors target Melbourne

The Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) has targeted businesses in the Melbourne CBD and inner suburbs this week.

On 20 and 21 June, Fair Work inspectors checked time and wage records to ensure employers are paying their workers correctly and complying with pay slip and record-keeping requirements.

Concurrently, ASIC analysts conducted site visits to reduce the time burden on small businesses who would otherwise receive separate visits from the agencies.

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.
