A Frankston mobile phone retailer has been penalised a total of $23,000 for under paying an overseas worker.
The owner of the company admitted to underpaying an employee, a Korean national, a total of $4029 between April and September, 2014.
In addition to the penalties, the company has also back-paid the worker in-full.
The underpayment occurred despite previous notices by Fair Work Inspectors, of the need to pay minimum entitlements, including penalty rates, when investigating similar complaints from two other workers, also Korean nationals.
The employee was in Australia on a 485 Temporary Graduate Visa, and was paid an average of $13.16 an hour.
Under the General Retail Industry Award, he was entitled to receive between $17.98 and $18.52 for ordinary hours, and more than $37 an hour for Sunday and public holiday work.
Superannuation and annual leave entitlements were also underpaid and record-keeping and pay slip laws were contravened.
The penalty considered the prior complaints made and the failure to implement a system in response to those complaints.
