With tougher sanctions and penalties of up to $20,000 for each breach imposed on business owners, employers need to be confident they are meeting their minimum statutory obligations.
In 2017 we have seen significant sanctions on employers and it seems every week the newspapers name and shame employers who have breached minimum standards. Penalties can now include pecuniary penalties of $100,000 and employers face a stand down period which will prevent them from employing workers on a visa.
