Fair Work Claims are experts in recovering unpaid wages and entitlements.

Unpaid wages happen when your employer doesn’t pay you the minimum monetary amount, or allowances and entitlements that are outlined in the agreement or award that you work under.

It can happen by mistake, but in many instances, unpaid wages is a deliberate action taken by your boss to steal money that you are rightly and lawfully entitled to.

The National Minimum Wage

From July 1 2018, the national minimum wage is $18.93 an hour, or $719.20 a week.

If you are being paid less than this, you are being ripped off, and you need to take action.

How Do I Know Which Award Applies To My Job?

Different jobs in different industries have different minimum pay rates and allowances and entitlements.

The specific wages and entitlements that you are eligible for can depend on your age, the state you live in, the industry you work in, your qualifications and your duties and responsibilities.

To check which award applies to your job, visit the Fair Work Ombudsman website and use the Find My Award Pay Calculator.

How We Can Help

Fair Work Claims are experts at investigating and recovering unpaid wages, and can assist you through every step of the process.

We may need to request your pay records from your employer, and then our analysts will calculate the difference between what you were paid, and what you should have been paid.

We will then negotiate with your employer to recover what you are owed.

If they refuse, then we generally escalate the matter by taking formal legal action in the Federal Court or the Federal Circuit Court.
