Customer Question

I think I may have been underpaid by my company which has just gone into administration.
I was salaried on $3600 per week as my base rate. The Enterprise Agreement stated that the base week for salary staff was 38hrs but we were expected to work up to 43 hours. For every hour over 43 we were to be paid per hour. I regularly worked 70hrs and up to 84hrs and was not paid any extra. If I only worked 4x10 hr days in a week the pay clerk would only pay me 4/7ths of $3600 regardless of how many hours I worked. Do I possibly have a claim?

You have a claim and you should lodge it with the Administrator.

They have to pay you if there is any money. You are a creditor.

If you are owed other entitlements you may be able to lodge a claim with GEERS

Here is there website.

Lodge your claim with the administrator. If they terminate you then you can claim on GEERS
