Wage Theft Community Roundtable

Wage theft is an epidemic. 1 in 5 young Victorian workers we surveyed are paid less than minimum wage, and victims of wage theft are underpaid an average of $3.12 per hour.  Less than half of young workers surveyed who work nights, weekends and public holidays are paid penalty rates for their work. Our wage enforcement laws are broken and ineffective.

We are proposing an amendment to the Crimes Act (1958) that would mean deliberate and dishonest wage theft would be an offence punishable by imprisonment.

Join us for a community roundtable to discuss how our proposed wage theft laws will help end wage theft in Victoria.

This event is for policymakers and representatives from youth organisations, community legal centres, and other organisations who want to see an end to wage theft in Victoria.

The Young Workers Centre strives to run inclusive and accessible events. Please contact Sarah Bright sbright@vthc.org.au to discuss any accessibility requirements.

This event is part of Law Week 2018.  We acknowledge Victoria Law Foundation as the presenter of Law Week.
