Over the past year we’ve seen news story after news story about franchise owners ripping off their workers. We’ve seen businesses and managers forcing employees to fake their worksheets, work without their breaks and even in some cases hand back their wages.

 

A modern Labor party cannot stand by. That is why a NSW Labor Government will act to criminalise wage theft.

 

No longer will unscrupulous employers who deliberately underpay and exploit their workers be treated lightly. We will impose fines and jail time for employers who rip off their workers. We will name and shame employers who breach the laws and will exclude them from Government contracts. Only Labor will fight to make life fairer for the people of NSW. Will you join our campaign for a Fairer NSW?
