The Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) has recovered $389,982 in unpaid wages for 163 security guards following an investigation into 19 security businesses in Queensland. Brisbane, Gold Coast, Townsville, Maryborough, Gympie and Mackay businesses were investigated between September 2019 and July 2020 after intelligence – including anonymous tip-offs and job advertisements – raised concerns that some guards may have been incorrectly engaged as independent contractors rather than employees.
