The Constitution says everybody is entitled to FAIR labour practice. (s23.1)
Is it FAIR for employers to ask job seekers for pay slips during recruitment when they are never upfront about pay?
PaySlipBanSA challenges unfair employer advantages called MONOPSONY POWER during recruitment by exposing the negative impacts of this practice.
Our successes include the Henley Business School and Raizcorp who both converted to upholding pay transparency in their job adverts. We have also prevented unfair financial claims against a former employee at PSG Wealth.
Job advert pay secrecy followed by demands for payslips and pay history, obstructs job applicant human rights and a fair competition for talent among employers.
Money raised is used to:
As the Constitution enshrines fairness,’ PaySlipBanSA is to raising employer and public awareness while lobbying for regulatory changes in industrial relations and competition law.
When pay information about employers is inaccessible, they are not entitled to job applicant and rival employer pay information.
Compensation and sustainability are essential considerations for job seekers who must apply for positions they can afford to take. If job adverts are not upfront about pay, applicants should not volunteer their own pay information first.
It's all connected - but you know INFORMATION is a power tool, right?!
What job applicants agree to share during recruitment can limit them for life!
If you took a low paying job just to get some experience, that low pay is now your price tag. The next employer will claim that what you are paid is a testimony of your worth and that their offer will be based on your pay history with other employers.
You see, if the employer / recruiter has more information, they have more power and prevent job seekers from fairly negotiating pay by using their pay history against them. That's unfair!
PaySlipBanSA exposes how unequal power and information advantages allow inequality to be entrenched.
Employers claim they use pay slips to determine job seeker honesty, yet the spread of inequality suggests virtue isn't present.
We have evidence of unlawful information shares against the recruitment and HR firms, listed below. With your help, we can take legal action against them:
We also have evidence of predatory, iniquitous recruitment practiced by:

Pay Slip Ban SA believes it’s in the public interest to take this up and lobby for a Really Fair Labour Market.
