$6,500 underpayment recouped for Matthew Flinders Homes member

31 October 2019

The ANMF (SA Branch) is currently recouping what has been identified as a substantial underpayment for a personal care worker at Port Lincoln’s Matthew Flinders Home.

The underpayment, currently sitting at $6,500, came about as the employer had:

  1. Failed to accurately apply a penalty rate provision of the enterprise agreement; and
  2. Paid the member the incorrect classification over a number of years of service.

The ANMF (SA Branch) encourages all members at Matthew Flinders Home to verify they were paid correctly and follow up with their employer to report any discrepancies. If you require additional support, contact the ANMF (SA Branch) Duty Officer on 8334 1900.
