Paying workers fairly is good business practice and Fair Work Australia continue to hunt down miscreant employers who do not abide by this principle. It is reported that a restaurant owner in Canberra has recently had to find $50,000 as a consquence of not paying workers fairly.
As part of the practice of searching out employers who do not implement fair pay it is also reported in the press that Fair Work Australia will be targetting brothels in Victoria in the coming months, conducting audits to establish that the remuneration for receptionists in this business is fair and proper. We await the outcome of these audits with interest.
