RE: OUTSTANDING WAGES AND ENTITLEMENTS
Dear Mr Mount,
I refer to my employment with your organisation for the period 2 June 2010 to 27 June 2013 as a food and beverage attendant grade 2. I was informed my position was being made redundant on 13 June 2013.
I believe my employment was subject to the Fast Food Industry Award 2010 and the National Employment Standards (NES) in the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth).
Under the Award and the NES, I am entitled to:
During the time I was employed I took a total of 40 days annual leave. Therefore I am owed payment for unused annual leave equal to 4.3 weeks.
I believe the following entitlements are owed to me:
Please pay the outstanding amount of $8677.30, less any tax payable, within seven days of this letter. If I do not hear from you within this time, I will consider making a complaint to the Fair Work Ombudsman, and possibly court action.
My telephone number is 0432 985 247.
I look forward to resolving this matter as soon as possible.
