Red Rooster joins Macca's and Domino's in employee pay audit
Red Rooster is the third major fast-food chain to sign up to a national audit designed to ensure that staff at its franchise stores are being paid properly, following the lead set by McDonald’s and Domino’s.
Red Rooster Foods Pty Ltd and its franchisees have agreed with the Fair Work Ombudsman to self-audit employment records to ensure that 2500 staff working for franchise outlets are paid correctly, and to correct any issues they may find.
Together, Red Rooster Foods and its 250 franchised stores employ more than 7500 people.
Red Rooster has agreed to audit a sample of employment records between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2011. The process, which will include both metropolitan and regional Red Rooster outlets, is expected to take until the end of August, 2012, after which Red Rooster Foods will provide a report on its findings to the Fair Work Ombudsman.
