FairWork ombudsman focuses on hospitality employers

The Fair Work Ombudsman has announced a major new campaign targeting employers in the hospitality industry.

According to the FWO’s press release: Early next year, the FairWork ombudsman will contact more than 1000 accommodation providers, pubs, taverns and bars throughout Australia and ask them to supply employment records for audit. FairWork inspectors will check that employers are paying workers correct minimum rates of pay, penalty rates, loadings and allowances and are complying with their record-keeping and pay slip obligations. Employers in every state and territory will be audited.
The focus on accommodation providers, pubs, taverns and bars is the first stage of a wider three-year campaign focussing on the hospitality industry.

Penalties of up to $33,000 apply for any breach.
