Fair Work inspectors to visit Adelaide employers

About 200 businesses in Adelaide will receive a visit from the Fair Work Ombudsman over the next two months.

Fair Work inspectors will visit manufacturing, building supplies, engineering, vehicle repair, road transport and maintenance industries in the suburbs of Lonsdale, O’Sullivan Beach, Woodville and Wingfield.

According to Fair Work Ombudsman Nicholas Wilson, the informal visits will help employers understand national workplace laws, including the National Employment Standards and Modern Awards.

“Information packs being distributed include helpful resources such as fact sheets, templates and Best Practice Guides,” said Ombudsman Wilson.

“We are very serious about our job of building knowledge and creating fairer workplaces and we are strongly focused on ensuring the community understands its workplace rights and obligations.

“The best workplace relations advice I can give to business operators is to get the basics right and everything else should start falling into place.

“By the basics, I mean knowing what award applies to your employees, the correct classifications and pay rates.”

The Fair Work Ombudsman offers a single point of contact for Australian employers and workers to get information about their workplace rights and obligations. Workers and employers can contact the Fair Work Ombudsman through the Fair Work website or by calling the Fair Work Infoline on 13 13 94.
