Fair Work Ombudsman Ipswich Campaign

You may be aware of the compliance campaign that is currently being conducted by the Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) in the Ipswich region of Queensland.

R&CA have offered to assist the Fair Work Ombudsman with their campaign and play our part in helping our members and other affected restaurants to complete the compliance campaign process.

The purpose of the campaign is to assist businesses in complying with legislative workplace requirements.

What do you need to do?

If you have been selected to participate in the campaign, the FWO will have sent you correspondence which contains:

  • a request for you to provide copies of employee records, including timesheets and pay slips, for the last pay period;
  • a questionnaire for you to complete and return;
  • a specified timeframe of when you need to return the requested documents via email (or alternative means); and
  • a letter that you are required to provide to your employee to let them know that their personal information has been requested by the FWO.

If you have more than five employees, you may provide a sample of employees that includes:

  • at least one employee from each classification/job position;
  • at least one employee from each employment type ie. full-time, part-time or casual;
  • at least one employee from each age group (adult and junior); and
  • all 457 visa holder employees.

Next steps

Once FWO has received your records, they will assess them to see if you are complying with your obligations and paying your employees correctly. They will also check if you meet record-keeping requirements.

FWO will notify you of the outcome of their assessment. You will be asked to remedy any incidents of non-compliance.

Need help?

FWO will assist you with complying with any specific compliance requirements, resulting from their assessment of your records.
