A company agreement is an agreement between an employer and his employees, which is covered by the agreement setting the wages and conditions of these workers for a maximum period of 4 years. “Allow me, on behalf of the Scope Board, to convey my sincerest apologies to our colleagues involved in this matter. Our support staff provide essential services in line with our mission and we are determined to solve this problem for them. All of our employees, customers and the wider community can be sure that we are taking this matter very seriously,” said David Lloyd Jones, President of Scope. If you are a member of a trade union entitled to represent your industrial interests with respect to the work to be performed under the agreement, your union is your negotiator for the agreement, unless you appoint another person to your representative or revoke the status of the union than your representative. Dr Fitzgerald found that Scope has entered into a new company agreement with its capacity support workers, which was approved by the Fair Work Commission in December 2019. This new agreement has brought more clarity on the application of tariffs and rules, and Scope has implemented robust payroll practices to ensure employees are properly compensated. You have the right to appoint a negotiator to represent you in negotiations on the agreement or on an issue before the Fair Working Committee on Negotiations for the Agreement. “Scope has engaged professional support, including forensic accountants (Grant Thornton) and additional expertise to determine the exact amounts due to employees.
The causes of the underpayments were a misinterpretation of the overtime provisions applicable under the original company agreement and of cases where the necessary increases in the base rates for normal hours of work were not properly applied in all cases. A complete pay slip showed that the total underpayment is in the order of $326,000 over six years, from December 2013 to December 2019. The issue has affected about 1,470 former and current Disability Support Workers. The majority of affected employees were underpaid by less than $200. In addition to reimbursing underpaid funds, Scope also gives affected employees an additional goodwill payment of at least $200.
