Over the last few months Wageline has seen a steady increase in the amount of queries on how to make a complaint about underpayment of employment entitlements.

It is important for employers to be aware of their employment rights and obligations. The consequences for getting this wrong can be costly for employers. Employers who are unsure of employment obligations should visit the Finding the right pay rate page or contact Wageline.

Employees seeking information on the process for making a complaint about alleged underpayment should visit the Making a complaint about underpayment of wages or entitlements page or contact Wageline.
