FairWork is targeting several business channels to inspect employee records and employment terms. How any business fares will depend on how the business is run. The requirements on business owners are simple:

  1. Pay at least the aware rate this includes family members who are not documented shareholders in the business.
  2. Pay for all hours worked, including trial hours.
  3. Provide at no cost any required uniform.
  4. Have a structured roster and provide this in advance.
  5. Have a clear statement of duties.
  6. Provide a payslip with every pay.
  7. Pay on time.
  8. Pay super on time.
  9. Maintain work cover (or equivalent).
  10. Maintain proper records of compliance of the above.
  11. Maintain a policies document should you plan to rely on failure to follow a policy at some point in the future.
  12. Have a process employees can follow should they have any concerns or wish to raise a dispute.
