Making sure your employees are paid the right amount and on time is not as easy as it sounds. You have to make sure they are paid in accordance with the correct award and/or their employment contract bearing in mind compulsory breaks, overtime and allowances. Even if you have an internal person processing the pays what do you do when they need leave? How do you make sure they are keeping up to date with any changes? Who is checking their work?
Over the last few years many high-profile employers have faced investigation and/or prosecution by the Fair Work Ombudsmen for “Wage Theft”. Even though some of the underpayments may have been accidental “Wage Error” the financial penalties and damage done to the reputation of the businesses and their owners is irrecoverable.
