The Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) conducted an education and compliance campaign in the Adelaide CBD and surrounding suburbs.

Due to the high number of requests for assistance from those suburbs, a campaign was considered warranted.

Of the 125 businesses audited:

  • 56 (45%) were not compliant with either monetary, record keeping or payslip requirements
  • 36 (29%) were not paying their employees correctly
  • 29 (23%) were not compliant with record-keeping and pay slip requirements
  • $54 701 was recovered from 24 businesses on behalf of 113 employees.

The campaign resulted in the following compliance and enforcement outcomes:

  • seven formal cautions
  • six infringement notices were issued totalling $4500
  • three compliance notices were issued to three businesses totalling $8576 on behalf of 25 employees.
