The Fair Work Ombudsman has secured a total of $19,000 in penalties in court against an Adelaide freight transport company and its director.
The Federal Circuit and Family Court has imposed a $16,000 penalty against BSH Transport Solutions Pty Ltd, based in Regency Park, and a $3,000 penalty against the company’s sole director, Brenton Philip Smith.
The penalties were imposed in response to BSH Transport Solutions failing to comply with a Compliance Notice requiring it to back-pay entitlements to a full-time pay-roll manager it employed between January 2019 and May 2021. Mr Smith was involved in the contravention.
The Court has also ordered the company to take the steps required by the Compliance Notice, including calculating and back-paying the worker’s outstanding entitlements in full, plus superannuation and interest.
