Industrial Magistrates Court finds in favour of member owed annual leave

May 29, 2020

The Industrial Magistrates Court of Western Australia has ruled in favour of an AWU WA hair stylist member who was owed more than $2, 200 in annual leave.

The employer admitted to the non-payment and agreed to pay our member $2, 203.25 in 12 equal weekly instalments of $183.60 each, subject to any applicable taxation.

The member Jessica noted that Industrial Officer Carl Young has been “very helpful and professional” throughout the proceedings. He was “very patient” in explaining the process and providing any clarification needed.

“By myself, I couldn’t do it,” she said.

The first annual leave instalment was paid Friday 21st February 2020 as per the order, but we now find ourselves back in the Magistrates Court for enforcement of the remaining instalments.

On Monday 25 May 2020 Jessica and the AWU Industrial Officer continued the pursuit of $12,000 in unpaid employer superannuation contributions before the Clerk of the Industrial Magistrates Court.
