Fair Work Ombudsman & ABSIA

ABSIA have recently been establishing a relationship with the Fair Work Ombudsman office after a number of questions around annualised salaries were raised on the Forum. As a result, we were able to clarify some of these questions with Fair Work and pass this information back to the Forum. 

If you have any questions for Fair Work, please contribute them to this new Forum sub-category which is open to all Members. Not on the Forum? Email us and we can invite you.
