A month-long review has found that Woolworths has underpaid 5,700 of its’ staff by up to $300 million over the past decade.
Yesterday Woolworths Group released a statement admitting to the system failure.
“We unreservedly apologise,” said the company’s CEO, Brad Banducci.
“As a business we pride ourselves on putting our team first, and in this case we have let them down.
“The highest priority for Woolworths Group right now is to address this issue, and to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.”
Hi Daniel, we’re committed to making this right and will pay all entitlements owed to our team in full. Fixing this is the highest priority for the Woolworths Group right now, along with ensuring that it doesn’t happen again. Thanks.
