Have Australian Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
When did you resign and do you know how many hours you are owed?
Ok The letter trying to restrict your overtime is a concern, and the fact that you make no mention of whether you disputed it.
You have a right to sue for your money and you should do this in the Magistrates Court/Local Court in your state.
You should send them a letter of demand setting out what you are owed. Give them 14 days to pay and if they do not pay then you sue them.
It will take about 12 months to finalise it if they defend it but this is your only choice.
I also believe you would be covered by an award and this is what you rely on as that would not fix your overtime rates.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance.
