The most common form of wage theft is when your employer doesn’t pay you the prescribed hourly rate as set out in your award or agreement.
From July 2021, the minimum wage in Australia is $20.33 an hour, or $772.60 a week.
Most workers are paid a higher hourly rate depending on the award or agreement that they work under.
