Granite Belt complaints spike
underpayment of wages, non-payment of superannuation, overcrowded worker accommodation and bullying by outside contractors around the Granite Belt are being investigated by the Queensland Workplace Rights Office after a spike in complaints.
Ombudsman Don Brown this week said the increase in workplace complaints started in early February.
Mr Brown said this included concerns raised from individuals and people making complaints on behalf of others.
“In response, my office will investigate the specific complaints but the breadth of the allegations means that effective, lasting improvements will only occur if all of the responsible agencies are involved.
