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 I am very limited on what I can tell you and that you may have to get more detailed advice.
The following link covers the industry and sets out the awards.
Spending on what state you are in you will see the award and pay rates. Unless the award says you are not entitled to overtime etc they cannot change and pay you less than the award.
I would suggest that you contact fair work and lodge a complaint against the employer.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
