The Challenge: Navigating Australia's Complex Workplace Relations
Australia boasts one of the most intricate workplace relations systems globally. With a staggering 122 modern awards, each with its unique classification structure, and thousands of award pay rates, compliance becomes a daunting task. Moreover, the introduction of new tax laws has made non-compliance a risky affair. Businesses found guilty of wage theft can face fines up to $110,000, potential imprisonment, and public naming and shaming by Revenue NSW.
