What happens if I don't comply?

We’ve enhanced our information and redesigned our ‘What happens if I don't comply’ section and this can now be found at Warnings, notices and payment of fines.

We recognise that most employers will want to do the right thing for their staff. Our overall approach is to educate and enable you to comply with the legislation. This puts you in a position to make the right choices and decisions. However, the responsibility for complying will rest with you, the employer.

We will promote good compliance behaviour among employers by ensuring that the legislation is being applied fairly. In cases where you haven’t understood your duties or have been unable to comply, we’ll work with you to get you compliant.

Those who do not comply will face enforcement action in line with our risk-based approach.

But if you have ignored your duties, we will use our powers where necessary to ensure compliance.
Find our more on our enforcement approach.
