7.2.3 Infringement Notices

Introduction

Infringement notices (1.1.I.60) are intended to encourage employer compliance with the requirements of the PPLAct. Centrelink or the FWO can give an infringement notice if Centrelink or the FWO reasonably believes that the employer has contravened one or more of the civil penalty provisions. A person who is given an infringement notice is required to pay the pecuniary penalty specified in the notice, which is a lesser penalty than that which a court would have the discretion to order in a civil penalty order (1.1.C.70).
