Help with the Payroll Requirements of the New IR Laws in Australia

Inzenius team members have helped dozens of Australian companies over the years within the Entertainment & Events / Hospitality industries, including Moonee Valley Racing Club, O’Brien Group Australia, Spotless Group Holdings and Crown Melbourne, reduce their expenses and increase their profits with their Inzenius concept.  

The Better Off Overall Test (BOOT)

“The Better Off Overall Test” (BOOT) is now a complex piece of Australian Federal Industrial Relations legislation requiring businesses to top-up employee pays to the industry’s comparable minimum award conditions. The Fair Work Legislation Amendment (Secure Jobs, Better Pay) first phase of the Act has come into full effect in January 2024.

“I was struggling with a back pay project for over 12 months. The Inzenius team however responded to my query and provided the requested data within a day … exceptional service and great software that will assist a lot of other organisations too!”  Bianca Toce – People & Culture at Advisor Save Group.

Are you aware of the following potential repercussions?

  • Businesses not complying with the BOOT are designated as underpaying the employee(s) with penalties and backpays for any breaches being enforceable by law.
  • Systemic underpaying can result in a criminal charge for the offending organisation as well as against the Directors / Managers themselves. 

If so, the good NEWS is that Inzenius can help by eliminating the risk. We have a proven software solution to efficiently capture employee times worked in any location that accurately automates the comparison of salaried employees’ pay to what they would have earned if the appropriate award conditions paid them for easy and seamless pay adjustments. 

Suppose you would like to take the first step. In that case, the highly experienced team at Inzenius are confident that we can quickly determine the best way for the business to protect itself from any costly legal issues and continue to manage its responsibilities moving forward most cost-effectively.

As a responsible employer, you don’t want to get these things wrong.
