The Senate is undertaking an inquiry into wage theft. Wage theft is not limited to hospitality – it’s a pervasive issue in our industry too. We want to hear from you, because finance workers’ voices need to be heard. Our stories will add weight to the Senate inquiry. We know many of our members have experienced wage theft in their working lives. It’s time to stamp it out.
So What Is Wage Theft?
Wage theft is the systematic and intentional underpayment of your wages and entitlements, and can take many forms.
Here are some examples that should help you to identify wage theft:
- Not being paid for all the hours you’re required to work;
- Excessive hours of work that you’re not compensated for;
- Acting in a higher role without receiving the required allowance;
- Working through your breaks to meet workloads;
- Not being paid allowances such as car, district or meal; or
- Not being reimbursed for costs you incur as part of your work.
