Dealing with non-compliance

A principal employer organisation (PEO) has 14 days from the completion of the site audit to rectify any areas of non-compliance with the Queensland Quality Standards for principal employer organisations.

Where the auditor judges a non-compliance to be minor, a Systems improvement plan (strategy and timeframes) is negotiated with the PEO for preventative action. The strategy and timeframes must be appropriate to the degree of risk. The auditor is responsible for submitting the Systems improvement plan to the department for approval.

The auditor must inform the PEO of the need for a full or partial re-audit, or whether a written declaration that corrective action is complete and will be adequate.

Should a PEO be unable to achieve compliance against the Queensland Quality Standards, its certificate of recognition as a PEO may be cancelled.
