The Fair Work Ombudsman has released a ‘Record My Hours’ app to address and prevent the underpayment of Working Holiday goers in Australia.
The new app allows workers to easily record the time they work by aggregating data using geofencing technology to track when the employee arrives and leaves the workplace each day.
Natalie James from the Fair Work Ombudsman has said that ‘the app would be a valuable back-up for workers when employers failed to meet their record-keeping obligations.’
James further stated that ‘downloading this app won’t cost you a cent, but it could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars if you are concerned that you are not being paid your correct entitlements.’
The Record My Hours app is available in 12 different languages and can be downloaded from the iTunes and Google Play stores.
