Darrell Lea ordered to pay $120,000 to young staff

Post by shammy on Fri Jun 13, 2008 10:22 am

AUSSIE chocolate maker Darrell Lea has been fined $120,000 for bullying its young staff to sign Australian Workplace Agreements.

Federal Magistrate Philip Burchardt today found the confectionery company had breached the Workplace Relations Act.

At the Federal Magistrates' Court in Melbourne, Mr Burchardt handed down a $10,000 penalty against Darrell Lea for each of 12 instances of duress against employees it wanted to sign the now-redundant AWAs early last year.

The Workplace Ombudsman- which initiated action against the company over its treatment of casual sales assistants as young as 16- welcomed the penalty.

The sales assistants worked in stores across three states.

Ombudsman Nicholas Wilson said the fine sends a message to both Darrell Lea and other employers that bullying workers will not be tolerated.


"O Allah remove the hardship, O Lord of mankind, grant cure for You are the Healer. There is no cure but from You, a cure which leaves no illness behind."
