FAIR WORK ACT 2009 - SECT 550

Involvement in contravention treated in same way as actual contravention

             (1)  A person who is involved in a contravention of a civil remedy provision is taken to have contravened that provision.

Note:          If a person (the involved person ) is taken under this subsection to have contravened a civil remedy provision, the involved person's contravention may be a serious contravention (see subsection 557A(5A)). Serious contraventions attract higher maximum penalties (see subsection 539(2)).

             (2)  A person is involved in a contravention of a civil remedy provision if, and only if, the person:

                     (a)  has aided, abetted, counselled or procured the contravention; or

                     (b)  has induced the contravention, whether by threats or promises or otherwise; or

                     (c)  has been in any way, by act or omission, directly or indirectly, knowingly concerned in or party to the contravention; or

                     (d)  has conspired with others to effect the contravention.
