The company behind a western Sydney Crust pizza outlet will face court in Sydney for 6 February 2020.
It’s alleged 1 TWO KA 4 CP Pty Ltd, which operates the Crust Pizza outlet located on Church Street in North Parramatta, failed to meet the requirements of a Compliance Notice issued by the Fair Work Ombudsman.
The company directors and shareholders Vipul Dasharathbhai Janisari and Dhruvin Jagdishbhai Patel will also face court.
Employees of the outlet requested assistance, with Fair Work Inspectors forming the belief workers were underpaid minimum wages and casual loadings, as well as overtime rates and penalty rates for public holiday and evening work under the Fast Food Industry Award (2010).
The Compliance Notice required the company to calculate and rectify the alleged underpayments and produce reasonable evidence of its compliance.
The company faces a maximum penalty of $31,500, while Janisari and Patel each face a maximum penalty of $6,300.
The FWO is also seeking a Court Order requiring the company, Janisari and Patel to take the action required by the Compliance Notice, including calculating any underpayments and required superannuation contributions and rectifying them in full, as well as paying interest.
