Two visa holders in NSW have been underpaid by Westside Petroleum Retail 1 Pty Ltd

The Fair Work Ombudsman has commenced legal action against a major service station chain for allegedly underpaying 22 employees $62,393 at sites across regional NSW.

Facing the Federal Circuit Court is Westside Petroleum Retail 1 Pty Ltd and three of its management staff – general manager Patrick Riad, company accountant Francesco Ieraci and area manager Shahzaib Khawaja – who are each alleged to have been involved in the company’s breaches.

The FWO alleges that employees were underpaid at 12 petrol stations - Adaminaby, Wagga Wagga, Finley, Gurley, Lismore, Somerton, Temora, Tolland, Blayney, Glen Innes, Peak Hill and Cooma – for periods between July 2015 and May 2016.

It is alleged that service station workers were underpaid from $347 to $7,772, with four of the employees aged just 19.

Two affected workers were visa holders with one employee on a 489 regional sponsored visa.
