May 18, 2011

The Fair Work Ombudsman will make educational visits to more than 100 businesses in Sydney’s inner-west over the next two months.

Fair Work inspectors will be providing information packs to employers previously covered by the NSW industrial relations system but who are now under the national workplace relations system.

Between now and July, inspectors will visit employers in Burwood, Drummoyne and Homebush. It follows around 60 visits during April to businesses in Ashfield and Croydon.

Fair Work Ombudsman Executive Director Michael Campbell says the informal visits will assist employers to understand national workplace laws, including employment standards and modern awards.

"Information packs being distributed include helpful resources such as fact sheets, templates and best practice guides providing advice on practical steps employers can take to adjust to the new system," Campbell says.

"We are very serious about our job of building knowledge and creating fairer workplaces and we are strongly focused on ensuring the community understands its workplace rights and obligations."
