What is 'Accessorial Liability' & Why All Bookkeepers & Accountants Need to Know!
The Fair Work Ombudsman describes this as "Accessorial liability occurs when a person or company is involved in the contravention of a workplace law. When this happens, they’re treated the same way as the employer responsible for the contravention. They can be ordered by a court to pay employees’ unpaid wages and entitlements, as well as penalties for their involvement in the contravention" and have been taking a strict stance since 2018.
Take this example where Coles were held accessorily liable for contractors, despite their indirect relationship. This exercise cost them over $220k in back payments and penalties.
