What is Employment Compliance?

Employment compliance refers to an employer’s legal obligations in the workplace.  If you are unsure of what your obligations are as a business owner or manager, a way of identifying which employment frameworks impact your employees is to complete a Compliance Review.  An employment compliance review is a review of your current employment practices against your legal obligations.

The Empowered Compliance Review covers the compulsory employment standards that apply to all Australian employers.  We will look at the requirements specific to your business and industry, including:

  • Any National Award coverage;
  • National Employment Standards;
  • rostering requirements;
  • employment contracts;
  • wage payments and payslip requirements;
  • employer superannuation contributions;
  • employment documentation and reporting;
  • employee privacy and data storage requirements;
  • risk management policies and procedures.

What are the benefits of a Compliance Review?

The legal obligations placed on employers can be complex, and this Review will ensure that your business is compliant and minimise your business risk.  A Review also provides your business the opportunity to assess what is currently been done well and how things might be done differently, more efficiently, or at a reduced cost.

On completion of your Compliance Review you will receive a Report of your results together with practical tips for implementing effective business practices to enhance productivity, and recommendations for meeting your employer obligations and minimising risk.

You can use the information from your Report to assist with:

  • Increased productivity: Ensuring what your employees do each day contributes to your organisational goals.
  • Increased accountability: Clarifying employees’ roles and responsibilities helps them perform to their full capability and add value to your business.
  • Increased engagement: Making expectations clear and providing consistent management practices, assessing whether employee benefits meet market expectations and supporting your role as a people leader.
