Workplace crime is a new area of criminal law brought in as a result of legislative changes in Victoria. Importantly, the crimes of wage theft and workplace manslaughter now carry criminal penalties, which include substantial fines as well as imprisonment. It really is a game changer. It imposes obligations and duties on all areas of industry and upon all of the individuals who owe duties to others in the workplace. It will have particular relevance and prevalence in the building and manufacturing industries, where there might be tens or hundreds of people working for a business or on a site, all of whom are owed duties.
