Merivale Class Action
Adero Law filed a class action in the Federal Court on 24 December 2019 against Hospitality Company M.R.V.L. Investments and related entities (commonly known as Merivale Group) to seek compensation for underpayment of employment entitlements under the General Retail Industry Award 2010 and hours worked but not paid.
If you have been employed by Merivale at any of their venues in a hospitality position, at any time during the six years prior to 24 December 2019, and work or worked at any of their venues, it is not too late to join this action.
On 24 December 2019, Adero Law filed a proceeding in the Federal Court against M.R.V.L. Investments or more commonly known as Merivale, alleging that they have underpaid their employees.
Group members will allege they were paid for 38-hours per week while being required to work at least 50-hour weeks, and without any overtime payments. It is clear the Company has failed to pay the minimum Award entitlements under the Fair Work Act 2009 and the relevant modern Award.
“The class action will provide access to justice for hospitality workers who would not otherwise have the financial means necessary to fight such wealthy and litigious employer – it is a David v Goliath battle in the truest sense”
Adero encourages current and former employees working in the venues across New South Wales to check your eligibility to join the class action.
