A kitchen hand working in aged care has won her wage theft case.
After three years without a pay rise, as well as not being paid properly for the shifts she worked as a cook, a kitchen hand approached her employer regarding her rights and pay. Management did not respond.
The kitchen hand called her union, United Voice, and it was found that the United Voice member was incorrectly classified, and hadn’t received the proper increments over the three year period.
The member won back $5,000 in wage theft.
