Western Australian Industrial Relations Commission

Unchallenged denied contractual benefits claim upheld

The Commission has upheld a claim for denied contractual benefits where the respondent failed to appear before the Commission despite having been served with a notice of hearing.

The applicant gave evidence she was employed by the respondent, including an offer of employment which offered the applicant casual employment at a specified hourly rate. The applicant gave evidence that she was underpaid for her work during her employment with the respondent to the amount of $825.87.

Commissioner Matthews accepted her evidence and found that since the evidence from the applicant was unchallenged and she was a credible and believable person, the respondent had denied her a contractual benefit in the sum of $825.87 and ordered the respondent to pay the applicant that sum.
