Free online masterclass to get your workplace relations right

Did you know the Fair Work Ombudsman has recovered more than $253 million in unpaid wages from small and medium employers in the past financial year?

Regulators are cracking down. The Fair Work Act’s Closing Loopholes Bill recently increased penalties for businesses who are found not to be taking concrete steps to comply with their payroll obligations to staff.

While most businesses do the right thing, many get tripped up by the fineprint. So how can you ensure your business is protected? No matter how big or small your business is, if you employ people, you can’t miss Kochie’s Business Builders’ latest FREE masterclass in association with KPMG Australia, Are You Paying Your People Correctly? What Every Small Business Needs To Know. 

David Koch will be joined by two industrial relations and pay compliance specialists who will walk us through:

  • The employment obligations you need to know (including awards and entitlements)
  • The proactive steps you can take to manage compliance from the front
  • Examples of how businesses have got it right – and wrong

This event is brought to you in association with KPMG Australia.
