As a company director or senior manager, you will know that all Australian businesses, whether large or small, must adhere to strict rules around managing their employees. These are encapsulated in both the Fair Work Act (Cth) (2009) and the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (Cth). To make matters even more challenging, employment law is constantly changing and evolving.
At PWR Consulting, we have a extensive experience assisting companies of all sizes, and across a broad range of industries, ensure they are compliant. We also ensure that the process is not only cost-effective but will make your business more efficient.

A Queensland Pizza Hut franchisee was hit with $216,700 in penalties following a successful prosecution by the Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO). He was found guilty of using a sham contract to underpay a delivery driver and then falsifying records in an attempt to cover it up.
The FWO viewed that the worker was an employee, not an independent contractor, as Zhao’s company had a level of direction, supervision and control over the driver and he was not running an independent business. Zhao had actually been warned by the franchisor not to engage in sham contracting arrangements.
Last week, the FWO took legal action against the multinational company Foodora for allegedly committing multiple breaches of sham contracting.
The difference between a contractor and an employee
If you use an independent contractor, even if you are paying them fairly, you could be liable for sham contracting. It is your legal obligation to know what separates an employee from a contractor.

Farmers are being warned that a simple choice can have tragic consequences and that they must plan ahead and prioritise safety in each and every task.
The warning from WorkSafe follows twelve workplace deaths from incidents on Victorian farms since July 2017, an average of one a month.
Six people have died as a result of on-farm workplace incidents since January 1, which is half of the workplace deaths that have occurred in Victoria so far in 2018.
The plea to put safety first comes as National Farm Safety Week highlights the many simple things that farmers can do to make their workplaces safer for themselves, workers and family members.
Keeping safety front of mind for each task was crucial to making farming workplaces safer.
National Farm Safety Week is an opportunity to remind farmers that the quad bike rebate, to assist farmers to fit roll over protections devices to their bikes, or help pay for a more terrain appropriate vehicle, was still available through the Victorian Farmers Federation.
Tips for making your farm safe:
• Plan ahead. Think about each and every job and how it can be carried out safely.
• Use the right equipment for the job.
• If you're working alone, let someone know where you will be, and check-in so people know where you are.
• Ensure all machinery is switched off and disengaged when undertaking maintenance.
• Don't try and do everything yourself, engage specialists if necessary.
• Never think that experience will prevent accidents.
