Fair Work Ombudsman and ASIC target Melbourne businesses in joint campaign

21 June 2017

The Fair Work Ombudsman and the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) are auditing 50 businesses in the Melbourne CBD and inner suburbs in their second joint operation.
 
From 20 to 21 June, Fair Work inspectors are checking time and wage records to ensure employers are paying their workers correctly and complying with pay slip and record-keeping requirements.
 
Concurrently, ASIC analysts are conducting site visits to raise awareness of the role of ASIC and the tools and resources that are available to assist small businesses with their compliance obligations.
 
By coordinating their visits, FWO and ASIC are aiming to reduce the time burden on small businesses who would otherwise receive separate visits from the agencies.
 
The campaign follows the success of the agencies’ May 2016 joint operation in Brisbane where The Fair Work Ombudsman recovered almost $40,000 for underpaid workers.
 
Employers who have questions about employment relations and workplace compliance can call the Workplace Assured Employers Free Advice Line on 1300 496 955.
