Why do you ask me for information?

Laws about pay and conditions are different for each workplace and each job.

Submitting an online enquiry takes most people around 5-10 minutes. We'll ask you questions about your situation so we can give you accurate advice.

What information do I need to provide?

If you need to submit an enquiry, make sure you know the following:

Business information

  • business name
  • Australian Business Number (ABN) - we'll help you find the ABN if you don't know it
  • business address and phone number.

Employee information

  • name of the enterprise agreement that covers the employee, if any
  • employee's occupation and main duties
  • employee's start and end date (if no longer employed)
  • employee's pay rate.

You don't need to send us any paperwork when you submit your enquiry. If we need evidence (for example, pay slips, time sheets and contracts) we'll ask you to send them to us later

Can I make an anonymous tip-off?

If you don't want to provide your personal details via My account and you don't need us to get back in touch, you can make an anonymous report.

Anonymous tip-offs help us identify workplaces that aren't doing the right thing. Reports can be made in English or other languages.
