Local businesses should keep their eyes peeled for the Fair Work Ombudsman this month.
A workplace audit campaign will be rolled out across businesses in the Murray River region as part of a new education and compliance campaign.
Cobram, Yarrawonga and Tocumwal businesses will be targeted as Fair Work inspectors personally visit 70 businesses.
Inspectors are to focus on record-keeping and pay slip obligations and inform business owners about online resources that help with law compliance.
The importance of pay slip advice and compliance along with record-keeping for local businesses needs to be a priority.
‘‘Failure to issue pay slips denies employees the opportunity to check that their entitlements are being met and poor record keeping can impede the ability of Fair Work inspectors to check workers are being paid their full entitlements,’’ Fair Work Ombudsman Nicholas Wilson said.
In 2010, a similar campaign found that 64 per cent of businesses had breached workplace laws, including underpaying employees.
