Date: 29 July 2011
Campaign summary: Tasmanian Fair Work Inspectors are conducting a campaign in August 2011 which aims to educate employers on best practice guidelines when hiring new employees. Fair Work Inspectors will be promoting best practice guidelines and templates to 100 employers who have placed a job advertisement in August. Employers will then be audited in October 2011 to assess compliance with record keeping, payslip and hourly rates of pay obligations. This campaign has been triggered based on observations made by inspectors that in many cases where an individual lodges a complaint, they are not aware of their employment status, what award/agreement applies to them or their minimum rights; information typically provided to employees prior or upon commencement of their new role.
