Underpayment win for night fill team
Recently, the SDA was able to recover underpaid wages for a group of night fill workers at a major supermarket who had been not paid correctly.
The night fill workers - whose rostered shifts were predominantly four hours from 8pm to 12am – were often staying back but not getting paid for their time.
When the team members stayed back past midnight, not only were they not paid for that extra time worked, on most occasions they were also not given the break they would have been entitled to.
The SDA fought and was able to recoup the underpaid wages for the seven team members, totalling almost $15,000 combined.
