they’re not at risk of an underpayment claim

We’ve all read about cases of high-profile Australian businesses underpaying their staff in the media.

Recent award changes have increased the likelihood of accidental underpayments. Businesses of all sizes and across all sectors have been caught out - even those with well-informed and resourced HR teams who thought they had it covered. 

And one underpayments case could turn into a serious breach in workplace law, high penalties and significant reputational damage and costs to the business.

Let's make sure you’re not at risk
