Baiada getting its workplace practices together
The Fair Work Ombudsman has said the Baiada Group, Australia’s second largest poultry processor, has significantly improved its workplace practices and addressed the exploitation of vulnerable overseas workers by its contractors after entering into a compliance partnership last year.
The compliance partnership involved Baiada publicly declaring it had a “moral and ethical” responsibility to join the ombudsman to eliminate the exploitation of vulnerable works by contractors at its sites.
In a report released this week, the ombudsman says Baiada has undertaken important system reforms to ensure it knows who is working on its sites, and that they have been paid correctly.
Baiada has also ensured workers previously underpaid have been able to claim backpay.
Managing Director at Baiada, Simon Camilleri, said the proactive compliance partnership is a core priority for Baiada.
“We have implemented significant reforms across our business to ensure contractors’ employees at our sites are being treated fairly and lawfully by their employer,” Camilleri said.
