"Ai Group strongly opposes the Victorian Government's Wage Theft Bill. The legislation and the term 'wage theft' is not appropriate. It is an overly emotive term coined by unions to refer to certain types of underpayments. The term risks employers that make payroll errors being branded as thieves. The legislation is an attack on Victorian employers at a time when businesses need lots of support in order to survive through, and recover from, the COVID-19 pandemic. There is also significant doubt about the Constitutional validity of the legislation," Australian Industry Group Chief Executive, Innes Willox, said today.
