Fair work audit for Airlie Beach

ACCOMMODATION providers in Airlie Beach are expected to come under the microscope as part of a Queensland audit by the Fair Work Ombudsman. Inspectors will audit a number of hotels, motels and caravan parks over the next three months as part of a new education and compliance campaign looking into underpayment complaints in the accommodation industry.

Inspectors will check that staff are receiving their full entitlements, including minimum pay and penalty rates and that employers are complying with the necessary record-keeping requirements.

Fair Work Ombudsman Nicholas Wilson said where non-compliance was detected the preference of inspectors would be to assist employers to voluntarily rectify their issues.

"The campaign will also benefit employers who are complying with workplace laws because our auditing of compliance with minimum pay rates will help to ensure businesses are competing on a level playing field," he said.
