Could you be eligible for compensation?

The SDA has announced that it has instructed the class action law firm, Gordon Legal, to act its behalf in a wage theft Class Action against KFC.

The relationship between the SDA, the union for retail, warehousing, and fast-food workers, and Gordon Legal ensures that claims can be pursued on behalf of all potential class members in one proceeding against KFC and its franchisees.

The SDA has a long and proven history of advancing wages and working conditions of Australian workers in both the retail and fast-food industries.

“The claims that tens of thousands of workers have been underpaid by a company the size of KFC is disturbing and unacceptable. We owe it to our members and all workers in the fast food and retail industries to put an end to systemic wage theft for good” said SDA National Secretary, Gerard Dwyer.

The class action is expected to provide more than 80,000 workers across all of KFC’s Australian stores to recover lost wages as a result of their employer’s failure to provide them with rest breaks.

The class action alleges that over the past six years, KFC Corporate and its franchisee’s, who together employ over 40,000 people nationally, failed to provide all workers with rest breaks as required under the relevant Enterprise Agreement’s.

Gordon Legal has estimated that ten’s of thousands of current and former KFC team members will be eligible for compensation which may result in the total claims value being in the tens of millions of dollars.
