UNDERPAYING FROM 7-ELEVEN AND BEYOND

Written on the 9 February 2015

UNDERPAYING FROM 7-ELEVEN AND BEYOND A 7-ELEVEN in Brisbane has come under fire for alleged underpayment and refusal to cooperate with inspectors.

The overseas worker was allegedly underpaid more than $21,000 while working at the outlet at 243 Edwards Street between January 2013 and February 2014.

Owner and operator, Mubin Ul Haider, closed the outlet last year while the Fair Work Ombudsman's inquiry into the employee's minimum wages, casual loadings and penalty rates was in the process.

Fair Work issued two Notices to Produce (NTP) employment documents in May and June last year, but Haider failed to comply.

Haider also allegedly didn't respond to a follow-up letter in August.

"Our inspectors made extensive efforts to engage with this business operator to try to resolve the matter voluntarily, but were not been able to secure sufficient co-operation," says Fair Work Ombudsman's Natalie James.

"Enforcing Compliance Notices and NTP is fundamental for maintaining the integrity of Australia's workplace laws."

Legal action has commended against Haider and his company, Haider Enterprises Ptd Ltd.

A directions hearing is listed to be heard by the Federal Circuit Court in Brisbane today due to Haider ignoring notices.

Fair Work is seeking court orders for the company to back-pay in full the employee, who was a Visa holder from Nepal at the time and is now a permanent resident of Australia.
