Gold Coast business was slapped a $76,000 worth of repayment bill to two workers who were subject to underpayments after the employer claimed ignorance of his obligations despite 25 years in business.
PWFV Pty Ltd, which trades as Pacific Avenue Wholesale Fruit and Vegetables, paid a $20 per hour flat rate to the two casual workers who were employed to pick and pack fresh produce for customer orders in the company’s Burleigh Heads warehouse before delivering the orders in refrigerated vehicles.
