fair work ombudsman cracks down on non compliance and underpayments

The Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) is cracking down on non-compliance and underpayments. Last financial year the regulator recovered $123 million, which was more than three times the total of underpayment claims for the previous period.

In the last twelve months more than 60 businesses have self-reported breaches of workplace laws including underpayments totalling half a billion dollars.

Underpayments can result in prosecutions and hefty penalties against the employer and even its directors, as well as, significant reputational damage.
