Business SUpport services
Is your business compliant with the new Fair Work Act? Do you know if you are paying the correct wage entitlements, carrying out redundancies correctly, properly complying with employee requests for more flexible hours, together with a host of other changes brought in under the new Act?
Failing to follow correct procedures when dismissing an employee could cost you more than $51,000 in fines. Incorrect dealings with employees regarding requests for Flexible Working Hours can incur fines of up to $10,200. There have been many significant changes to awards and minimum conditions of employment. If your business has not taken the correct steps to identify employees correct rates of pay, penalties and other obligations you will be in breach (and subject to penalties) of your workplace obligations.
Maximum penalties have been increased for a corporation from $33,000 per breach to $51,000 per breach.
For an individual the penalty has been increased from $6,600 to $10,200 per breach. Failure to pay correct wages for four separate weeks can result in four separate breaches – four separate penalties.
Fair Work is auditing tens of thousands of businesses each year as well as responding to employee complaints. The ease with which employees can make complaints makes the chances of businesses being prosecuted for workplace relations breaches greater now than ever before.
Under Fair Work when you tackle issues that affect your business – sicklies, absenteeism, dismissals, redundancies, flexible working arrangements, managing poor performance – it needs to be done carefully and properly. Getting it wrong can leave you exposed to huge fines and penalties.
