Host of excuses for not paying staff

A BUSINESSMAN and his company were told for more than 18 months they had to give back-pay to three staff.

But despite this, Ian Andrews and Barry Scott Distributors Pty Ltd did nothing.

Federal Court judge Tom Altobelli said the lack of response to the Fair Work Ombudsman’s requests was “extraordinary”.

The ombudsman had told Andrews and his company to comply with lawful minimum pay rates back in 2011.

Judge Altobelli found during the Fair Work Ombudsman’s investigation, Andrews and his company were provided with extensive opportunities to rectify the underpayments.

But they simply failed to do so, while also deciding not to take part in a record-of-interview.

They came up with a host of excuses for not paying the three staff their entitlements.

These included bushfires, illness and issues with overseas bank accounts.

But Judge Altobelli said the failure to make any superannuation payments to the employees was “particularly serious”.

“Superannuation payments are designed to provide employees with security when they retire and are no longer able to earn an income,” he said.

Judge Altobelli noted the Fair Work Ombudsman had received five new underpayment complaints since 2012 relating to Andrews’ company, which has operated several businesses in the Albury area.

“In these circumstances, there is no other conclusion to be reached other than that the respondents have taken no corrective action to rectify their conduct,” Judge Altobelli said.

Two of the five new complaints since 2012 resulted in back-payments.
