Compliance Mechanisms and Penalties:
Inspectors authorised under the Act have powers to enter and inspect premises and to issue orders to rectify breaches of the legislation.
Failure to comply with, or contravention of, any provision of the Act is an offence.
Prosecutions for offences are brought before an Industrial Magistrate and fines are imposed on conviction.
It must be noted that the Act will have minimal impact on the above nominated industries as accommodation issues in contemporary times have, in the main been incorporated into relevant industrial instruments (whether Federal or State) applicable to those industries.
Review or Appeal Mechanisms:
An appeal against a decision by an Industrial Magistrate may be made to the Industrial Court.
