Stop Wage Theft!

Victory to the workers!

We did it! Wage theft is now a crime in VictoriaThe Wage Theft Bill will come into force on 1 July 2021. Young workers, union members and activists have campaigned hard for years to stop dodgy bosses stealing wages. Bosses found guilty of the crime of wage theft can now face hefty fines and jail time. 

Wage theft has also been criminalised in Queensland.

These resources, from our years of campaigning, may still be useful to you - they will help you organise your co-workers and enforce your legal rights if your boss is still stealing wages. You can also contact us for assistance!

If you live outside Victoria, feel free to use these resources in your campaigns! Don't forget to get in touch with your union for support!
