Security industry under microscope

THE Department of Productivity and Labour Relations and the Security Agents Institute have joined forces to raise awareness of employment obligations within Perth’s security industry.

The education program is part of DOPLAR’s targeted industry program, designed to make sure industries comply with WA employment legislation.

The department recently found 59 per cent of security industry employers were complying with their employment obligations under relevant legislation.

DOPLAR executive director fair workplaces Jenet Connell said the reviews were designed to establish a profile of employment relations within specific industries and detect breaches of employment terms and conditions.

“When problems are detected, employers are given an opportunity to rectify the breaches,” Ms Connell said.

“However, there are always a small percentage of employers who deliberately choose not to comply and DOPLAR will pursue these organisations to the full extent of the law.”

Security industry spokesman Ron Adams said the industry believes the exercise will lay the foundations for a stronger, more professional industry.
