Wageline runs a social media campaign in order to raise the level of employer and employee awareness of employment rights and obligations and the pathways available for pursuing an underpayment.
Employment obligations can be complex to understand, putting employers at risk of legal action and employees at risk of underpayment. Through our social media campaign, we are providing Western Australians with every opportunity to access information, resources and assistance.
Like and follow our social media pages for information and updates on state employment laws, including minimum pay rates, public holidays, long service leave, wage theft and changes to WA award wages and conditions. We also share the outcomes of our regular, proactive compliance investigations.
Wageline cannot provide specific employment information over social media. Our contact centre is best placed to respond to queries about employment rights and obligations in Western Australia.
