App protects workers

THE Fair Work Ombudsman has released a new app aimed at tackling the persistent problem of underpayment of young workers and migrant workers around the country.

Fair Work Ombudsman Natalie James said the app would be a valuable back-up for workers when employers failed to meet their record-keeping obligations.
