The Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) has been quick to 'set' the theme for workforce compliance in 2023. Just recently, the FWO served up allegations against Super Retail Group of underpayments amounting to more than $1million.

Australia’s workforce umpire said, “The breaches alleged [against SRG] – inadequate annual salaries for employees stretching across multiple years – have become a persistent issue for businesses across many industries.”
