Payroll underpayments in Australia

With Australia’s complex industrial relations landscape, it’s no surprise that The Fair Work Ombudsman recovered $509 million of underpayments in FY2023.

Even the smallest compliance missteps concerning minimum pay rates can lead to enduring underpayment issues that require rectification. To add fuel to the fire, underpayment cases frequently uncover systemic issues with far-reaching financial implications, including LSL, superannuation, payroll tax etc.

Why it's vital to get payroll remediation right

Underpaying employees can have serious consequences for their financial wellbeing, company trust and productivity. Employers are legally obligated to pay their employees correctly, and those who identify an underpayment issue but fail to remediate this issue for their employees may face penalties from the Fair Work Ombudsman or legal action from unions.

If you're considering downloading this checklist, your organisation have identified a systemic payroll compliance concern, potentially facing underpayment risks due to non-compliance with modern awards and enterprise agreements.
