A friend of mine was being paid well under award and minimum wage for months thinking that each pay was going to increase. He was also only being paid for a 38 hour week when some weeks he would work up to 50 hours. In his time being there, the employer paid for him to get his HR licence on a verbal agreement that he would pay he employer back. Since that time my friend has sought other employment as he was sick of being underpaid and putting him into more debt. In which he never recieved his final weeks pay from them. Now 2 months after finishing with the old employer, the old employer has started chasing him for the money from the HR licence. Should he report him to Fair Work Australia or the ombudsman for being underpaid? And as for the licence he is unable to pay the large fee. What should he do there?
