Woolworths' Employee Underpayments Blow Out To Almost $400M

Woolworths bill for employee underpayments has increased by about $75 million to $390 million, after it identified "payment shortfalls" in its hotels and liquor division, it told the ASX today.

The company was already facing hundreds of millions in backpay for failing to properly compensate almost 6,000 salaried employees in its retail operations covered by the general retail award.

But it has now revealed that it has a similar problem in its ALH Group, involving salaried employees under the hospitality award.
