Audits in Newtown to ensure fair pay

At least 60 popular dining spots in Newtown have be audited by the Fair Work Ombudsman this week. 

Cafes, restaurants and take away businesses around King Street, Newtown have been audited by Fair Work Inspectors to ensure fair pay. 

“Inspectors are speaking with King Street employers, managers and employees to check that workers are receiving their full wages and entitlements. We are also reviewing records to ensure businesses are complying with important pay slip and record-keeping laws,” Fair Work Ombudsman Sandra Parker said. 

“Cheap eateries in busy precincts operate in a particularly competitive environment, with labour representing a significant cost. When low menu prices seem too good to be true, customers should stop and consider- are we paying enough to cover workers’ minimum wages,” she added. 

This is following an overwhelming amount of alleged underpayment reports in Newtown hospitality outlets, as it received the third highest rate of anonymous reports in New South Wales. 

Large proportion of the reports came from young workers with 34 per cent, and visa holders with 27 per cent. 

“The Fair Work Ombudsman prioritises requests from assistance from vulnerable workers. We have a strong emphasis on ensuring young and migrants workers are aware of their rights and know how to seek help with workplace issues,” Ms Parker said. 

This week’s audit aims to improve workplace compliance from the employers who underpay staff. 

40 per cent of all anonymous reports to the Fair Work Ombudsman are received from the hospitality sector, which employs more than 500,000 workers across Australia.
