Industrial awards set the legal minimum pay rates for employees of Australian businesses. Understanding which awards may apply to your staff and what your pay and associated obligations are under your binding award is critical to avoiding costly underpayment claims and significant fines for serious contraventions of up to $630,000. Underpayments can accumulate quickly and if left unchecked can significantly impact a business’ bottom line.
