Meet Victoria’s Small Business and Wage Inspectorate Commissioners

23 February 2022

The Victorian Chamber is committed to providing you with as much information and resources as possible to set you up for success in 2022.


In this timely webinar the Commissioner of Wage Inspectorate Victoria, Robert Hortle and Victorian Small Business Commissioner Lynda McAlary-Smith present how their respective organisations can help businesses get on the right track for 2022.

Mr Hortle provides an overview of Victoria’s new wage theft laws which aim to address deliberate and dishonest underpayment of wages and entitlements, how wage theft differs from honest mistakes, the education, support, and advice available from his office, and why the new laws are important for helping create a level playing field for Victorian businesses.

Ms McAlary-Smith outlines the schemes and supports that you might be entitled to and explains how her office can help resolve and avoid disputes with other parties.

The session also includes a short moderated Q&A session with the presenters.
