As an employer, you might not realise when you are underpaying your employees, even if you are paying a higher hourly rate. Employers who deliberately underpay employees will now face jail time under the new Wage Theft Bill I discussed last week. We see big brands like coles, bunnings etc in the news for having underpaid their employees. It makes me wonder how big corporates like them can get it wrong having full time HR personnel on their books. So then what happens to small business owners who don’t have the same HR resources? They too are not immune to underpayments.
