Hungry or just plain greedy?

A HUNGRY Jack's fast food outlet in central Victoria has been penalised for underpaying its staff for more than four years.

The Federal Magistrates Court ordered the operator of the Bendigo outlet to pay a penalty of $46,200, after the company volunteered to pay back more than $104,000 it owed to its staff, who were mostly junior employees.

The underpayments occurred between July 2005 and December 2009.

The Fair Work Ombudsman said most of the underpayments resulted from the company failing to upgrade wage rates as required for the employees' length of service.

This resulted in underpayments of the minimum hourly rate, overtime and public holiday rates.
