17 March 2013FWBC pay and record-keeping audit to hit Gladstone this week

Fair Work Building Industry Inspectors will be checking the books of employers in the Gladstone commercial construction industry this week as part of Fair Work Building & Construction’s (FWBC) national audit campaign.

FWBC Chief Executive Leigh Johns said the campaign was being conducted to ensure that employers are paying the correct wages and entitlements and keeping pay slips.

“FWBC’s national audit campaign is being held in the interests of all employers and employees in Australia’s commercial construction industry,” he said.

“All Gladstone employees deserve a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work and Gladstone employers need to make sure their books and records are in order to avoid any problems down the track.

“During this campaign, we are visiting regional centres and suburban areas as well as CBDs to ensure we are providing advice and assistance to as many employers as possible.”

Fair Work Building Industry Inspectors will be in Gladstone from Tuesday (19 March) until Friday (22 March).

“As part of the visit, inspectors will sit down with employers to review their books and records and make sure everything is as it should be according the law,” Mr Johns said.

“Fair Work Building Industry Inspectors will also be delivering informal presentations to some employers about their rights and obligations with regards to pay and entitlements and record-keeping.

“As the regulator of workplace laws in Australia’s construction industry, FWBC has an important role to ensure employers are given all the advice and assistance they need to comply with the law.”

Employers can call our hotline, 1800 003 338, to schedule a visit from Fair Work Building Industry Inspectors. We are also available to speak with employers on the phone seven days a week.
