The Industrial Relations and Legal Team are currently dealing with several claims for the underpayment of wages, particularly in relation to the Building and Construction General On-Site Award.
As an employer, there are numerous obligations imposed on you – such as the payment of minimum rates and allowances, superannuation, portable long service leave, etc. – and a failure to comply can result in legal action or penalties being imposed against you.
Members are encouraged to ensure that they are complying with their obligations under the relevant legislation or Award.
If you have questions about the Award, or whether you are meeting your minimum requirements, please reach out to our IR & Legal Team to chat about your situation on (02) 6175 5900. This general advice/guidance is provided as a free service to MBA ACT members.
