Frequently asked questions

What does Yellow Canary do?

Yellow Canary challenges the traditional approach to workforce compliance. Their automated solutions are designed to support companies navigating the complexities of the Australian industrial relations system, and to enable ongoing compliance due diligence.

Why regular, ongoing pay reviews rather than remediation alone?

While remediation seeks to correct past errors and concerns, it does not necessarily address current issues, nor assist with ongoing compliance. Focusing only on the past leaves businesses exposed to the risk of continuing non-compliance. This in turn does not enable businesses to do the right thing by their employees.

Yellow Canary's Always On Compliance empowers businesses to achieve this objective by utilising automation to detect and resolve payment variances on a monthly basis.

We offer remediation as an add-on to our Always On Compliance solution to cover both historical and proactive reviews.

Why should my business prioritise compliance?

Australian businesses are under more pressure than ever to maintain and demonstrate workforce compliance. Non-compliance with workplace laws can result in payroll underpayments. This isn’t just bad for business; no matter the intent, underpaying workers can lead to decreased employee morale and lack of trust in the employer. Regular compliance reviews are essential for employers to ensure they’re meeting legal and ethical obligations and that issues do not compound over time.
