Contravention of Fair Work Act 2009 by Deepcore Australia Pty Ltd

Deepcore Australia Pty Ltd (Deepcore) employs approximately 100 employees in the mining industry across Victoria and Queensland.

As a result of a review of our wage records, Deepcore has identified some circumstances in which it failed to provide the correct rate of pay to employees between 2010 and 2015. These underpayments amount to contraventions of the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) and the Mining Industry Award.

Deepcore has formally admitted to the Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) that these contraventions occurred and has entered into an Enforceable Undertaking with the FWO (available at www.fairwork.gov.au) committing to a number of measures to remedy the contraventions, including:

  • rectifying the underpayments by 31 May 2016
  • paying 1.5% interest on underpayments
  • making a donation of $15,000 to Loddon Campaspe Community Legal Centre
  • providing training and conducting future audits, to ensure employees are paid correct rates of pay
  • creating a point of contact (being enquiries@deepcoredrilling.com) for all past and present employees to raise any concerns of underpayment

Deepcore expresses its sincere regret and apologises for the conduct which resulted in the contraventions. Furthermore, Deepcore gives a commitment to ensuring future compliance with Commonwealth workplace relations laws.

If you are a current or former employee of Deepcore and you have questions regarding this notice, please contact us via enquiries@deepcoredrilling.com.
