HR Audits – uncovering HR risks before they become problems

HR Audits – uncovering HR risks before they become problems

Whilst Myer may seem to have been on the front foot by terminating a cleaning provider following revelations that subcontractors had underpaid staff by $6300, it could definitely have been dealt with a lot earlier.

The underpayments made by subcontractors to Pioneer Facilities Services were revealed following a visit to Myer’s Fountain Gate store in South East Melbourne during December last year, when the Fair Work Ombudsman says it interviewed two cleaners during an unannounced visit.

According to the Ombudsman, the two cleaners, one of whom was an employee and the other purportedly an independent contractor, were found to be earning a flat-rate of $17 an hour.

Engaging with HR Central for an internal HR audit identifies issues like this, and provides resolutions before they become problems within your business.

It is a small investment for a large return and the peace of mind that comes knowing you are compliant!
