Updated Fair Work Information Statement

Update on Fair Work Information Statement written by Charles Watson of Workforce Guardian. 

Pursuant to the Fair Work Act, employers must provide all new employees with a copy of the statement prior to or upon commencement of their employment. Failure to provide the statement to a new employee is a breach of the Act, and could result in penalties of $63,000 for a business and $12,600 for an individual for each breach.

The Fair Work Ombudsman has updated the statement taking into account the new national minimum rates of pay effective from 1 July 2019.

We provide a copy of the statement for you to utilise. The statement can be obtained in languages other than English if required.

Workforce Guardian recommends employers provide a copy of the statement with an offer of employment and keep a record that the statement has been provided to a candidate or new employee. The statement can be provided in hardcopy or electronically.
