In 2019 Camp Australia undertook a review of its payroll systems and processes and determined that it contravened the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) by failing to pay some employees in accordance with the provisions of the Children’s Services Award 2010 (the Award).
On 20 December 2019, Camp Australia self-reported to the Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) that contraventions of the Award had occurred and:
a) consequently a number of employees had been underpaid; and
b) Camp Australia has back-paid and apologised to affected employees.
Camp Australia has now entered into an Enforceable Undertaking with the FWO to ensure its ongoing compliance with Commonwealth workplace laws. Camp Australia will, as a result of the Enforceable Undertaking, commit to undertake a number of activities to ensure its ongoing compliance such as conducting two independent audits, maintaining a hotline whereby employees can make enquiries about their entitlements and ensuring relevant training is provided to relevant employees.
Camp Australia expresses its sincerest regrets and apologises for these contraventions.
