The FairWork Ombudsman in Australia has recently announced a campaign to target the hospitality industry’s compliance with Australian Award legislation Australia-wide*.

There are so many demands on business owners in the hospitality industry that they can find compliance confusing and time-consuming, which can lead to the risk of underpayment of staff.

Roster with ROSS makes compliance easier in five ways:

1.    Easy to maintain wage classification tables including automatic age-based rate increases
2.    Fingerprint- or PIN-based time & attendance with ROSSo’clock for accurate records of staff hours worked
3.    Approve and send hours worked data to payroll programs divided into classifications based on rules
4.    Produce reports that clearly show the staff hours approved for payroll
5.    Cloud-based record-keeping backed up on a central server

A Roster with ROSS client needed historical reporting for FairWork Australia. As part of his weekly process, he prints copies of the ROSS actual hours worked report and files it in a folder. When the inevitable Fair Work audit occurred these ROSS records assisted the client in passing the audit.

Another client of Roster with ROSS, a café owner, had a staff member approach with a query about their pay rate. He was quickly able to run a report in ROSS of hours worked over the last 3 months, and was able to rectify a small underpayment in one simple transaction, without involving the Fair Work Ombudsman.
