In this detailed interview with Daniel Proietto we learn more about the possible changes and impacts of the Fair Work Amendment (Protecting Vulnerable Workers) Bill 2017, specifically the financial impacts on both the individual and the company.
The Federal government’s proposed amendment to the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) (Act) to address exploitation of workers will, if it becomes law, affect employers, related body corporates, franchisors and franchisees. The proposed changes include increasing pecuniary penalties tenfold for serious contraventions of the Act.
Minter Ellison’s Karl Blake further details issues around accessorial liability in this exclusive interview. He also highlights what he sees as key challenges for employers in 2017, including “continued focus on the responsibility of franchisors and others up the supply chain… the operation of the new Building Code… expect some changes to the making of enterprise agreements”.
ELM TV EXCLUSIVE – Minter Ellison’s Tony Pick recently reminded us on this video of the importance around “accessorial liability” provisions in the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth).

Accessorial liability issues are top of the agenda with warning from the FWO that “If a finding is made that you contributed to a breach in your role in your organisation, then you can be fined, and also ordered to reimburse the affected individual for any financial loss suffered”.
Warnings have been given by the FWO that random spot checks would be conducted; focusing, in particular, on correct payment of wages, penalty rates, allowances, loadings, provision of appropriate meal breaks and compliance with record-keeping and payslip obligations, writes a Holding Redlich employment lawyer.
