Further to ASU correspondence on 25 September 2020 concerning outstanding payroll errors, the ASU has requested a progress update from Wellways.
Wellways have now provided the following:
Sleepover rate issue – current employees
Wellways have commenced auditing sleepover shifts and correcting rates applied. It is expected these audits will be completed by the end of February 2021.
Rather than waiting for all States to be complete, Wellways will contact staff as they work through each State. Members should then have an opportunity to review the calculations. The ASU has been advised that some programs are being prioritised for various reasons.
Wellways expect to contact former employees by the end of February or in early March 2021 so that they may review their calculations.
The ASU will review the employer’s calculations and will provide further advice to members so that they can ensure the underpayment has been calculated appropriately. Ensure your colleagues are Union members so that they can receive the most accurate and up-to-date information.
In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact:
