Am i legally entitled to know my pay scale or pay grading if I am over the award wage or salary. And if so what laws are they?
Ordinarily an employer will be up front with the employee about how their pay is to be calculated. So if that isn't happening here, then you have grounds to make a complaint to the Fair Workplace Ombudsman on the basis that your workplace rights have been violated.
I did my law degree at the University of Queensland
I am being told it is not standard practice to inform employees of there pay scale or grading however if going down the fair work track brings retribution upon the employee.
Is there a law which states that clear explaination of pay scale or grading or salary benchmarking is a shall and not a should?
