Notes

The Fairwork Scoring System entails that each Fairwork Principle is divided into two thresholds. Accordingly, for each Principle, the scoring system allows one ‘basic point’ to be awarded corresponding to the first threshold, and an additional ‘advanced point’ to be awarded corresponding to the second threshold. The advanced point under each Principle can only be awarded if the basic point for that Principle has been awarded. The thresholds specify the evidence required for a platform to receive a given point.

Platforms are only awarded a point when there is evidence to show that the platform fulfils the threshold set in a Principle. As such, a null score means either there was no verifiable evidence to award a point or the platform failed to fulfil the given threshold. A platform can therefore receive a maximum Fairwork Score of ten points. Fairwork scores are updated on a yearly basis.
