Pro-active Compliance Deed – Another Signee

Pro-active Compliance Deed – Another Signee

As reported on the Fair Work Ombudsman Website, the Retail Zoo Group is the latest major franchisor to sign up to a Pro-active Compliance Deed (PCD) with the Fair Work Ombudsman.

Retail Zoo Pty Ltd is the holding company of the Boost Juice Bars, Salsas Fresh Mex, Cibo Espresso and Hatch Chicken Shop group of companies. Retail Zoo employ around 5000 workers across almost 300 stores.

Under the terms of the PCD, they must develop systems and processes to ensure ongoing compliance with Commonwealth workplace legislation. In addition, the company will also undertake self-auditing of its employment records to ensure employees are receiving their full entitlements.

Self-audits will look at wages, loadings, allowances and penalties and include a mix of full-time, part-time and casual employees where applicable.

The message here is quite clear. Fair Work is going to continue to look at Employers to make sure they are paying all the correct entitlements.  It is preferable for any business to get ahead of the game and put these checks and balances in place. HR Central is the perfect resource to make this happen for you.
