About WageSafe

WageSafe is a collaboration between two highly respected payroll compliance specialists. ER Strategies brings 20+ years of proactive protection and employment compliance support, and Resurg Group brings 20+ years of technical delivery of operational analytics.

The Current Environment

Employers are currently experiencing intense scrutiny of their payroll and wage compliance, to ensure that they have not been underpaying wages and workers’ entitlements. Often non-compliance is caused by error, by the complexity of industrial instruments, or the limitations of legacy payroll and time and attendance systems.

WageSafe sees an inherent limitation in the ability of stand-alone systems that use different time-based measurements – rosters, time and attendance systems, and payroll – to align with the complexities of wage rules.

Employers face compliance issues because of the incorrect or incomplete configuration of one or more of their components in their payroll systems to meet continually enhanced industrial relations requirements.

Even small issues in payroll, or in time/attendance recording, when extrapolated over a large workforce over many years, are adding up to significant financial and legal exposures.

The WageSafe technology platform was built to satisfy our clients demand for real-time analysis of underpayments. With many years of hands-on interpretation and delivery of payroll compliance we understood the high time-cost of manual audits and the frustration of uncovering underpayments too far after the fact.

Our award interpretation engine has been built and tested on thousands of customer files, to establish a level of unsurpassed accuracy and speed of delivery.
