We cannot stress the importance of ensuring that staff are paid at the correct rates as per Fair Work Australia. If staff are underpaid, it is not simply a matter of making a catch-up remediation payment. Underpayment of superannuation entitlements in particular will incur significant penalties and charges.
Please ensure you have each new employee complete and sign the below forms and you advise us of the correct pay rate and entitlements as per Fair Work Australia. We strongly suggest you obtain HR advice prior to employing any new employees to ensure you are covered legally.
We also highly recommend you discuss any new employment with workcover or your business insurance broker to ensure you have the correct insurance cover.
