Catherine Black worked an extra 444 hours and got paid with a voucher for a free canoe trip.
Instead of paying Black more than $13,000 in overtime, her manager gave her movie tickets and vouchers.
One of the vouchers included a free canoe trip down the Brisbane River.
Industrial advocate Miles Heffernan says it’s one of the most blatant cases of wage theft he’s seen.
“It is unlawful to be paid in anything other than money,” he said.
“Catherine worked those long hours, therefore she deserves to be paid for that work, and a free canoe trip doesn’t cut it.”
