Did you know? New Wage Theft Laws

Australia’s forthcoming federal wage theft legislation signals a fundamental change in how employers are held accountable for ensuring fair wages. These laws represent a stark departure from previous practices by criminalizing deliberate underpayment, with severe penalties, including up to 10 years of imprisonment for egregious violations.

What’s striking is the shift towards proactive responsibility among companies; ignorance or reliance solely on payroll departments is no longer acceptable.
