Payroll Compliance

Payroll Compliance

Ensuring the accuracy employee pay is important not only for good employee relations, but also for avoiding hefty penalties.

Systemic underpayments can arise when:

  • The correct award/ agreement is not applied
  • The current minimum rates of pay are not maintained (they are reviewed every year as part of the Fair Work Commission Annual Wage Review and effective from the first full pay period on or after 1 July each year)
  • The payroll system is not properly configured, tested and audited for compliance
  • There is no oversight of the payroll team and any complaints they receive from employees.

Our team of employment lawyers can help ensure your business is up to date with legislative changes and can assist with complex award/agreement interpretations, and compliance with other workplace laws such as the long service leave legislation in each state.

Our team includes lawyers with experience in in-house payroll teams, payroll system implementations and integrations.

Whether you are a small or large business, we can assist your business to ensure your payroll is compliant with workplace instruments and laws and avoid systemic underpayments.
