The Fair Work Ombudsman is sending a strong message to the business community right now….
The underpayment of employees will not be tolerated.
Most recently, there was a Federal Court decision in an action brought by the Ombudsman against Finn Fish Pty Ltd who owned the Red Salmon restaurant.
The owner together with his company were fined $ 190,000 plus for underpayments to employees.
Clearly this was bad Policy by this company, and many other companies and businesses are persisting not only with underpayments, but a cash in hand model.
