Pay slips and record-keeping

The inquiry found that many contractors were unable to provide records to Fair Work Inspectors, including where these were required to be kept under the Regulations. The breaches found included:

  • failure to provide pay slips to employees
  • record-keeping breaches such as failure to make and keep required records, as well as the making and provision of false or misleading records. At 52% of sites, the records provided to the inquiry were inaccurate and at 32% of sites, time and wage records were not kept by employers at all.
