Mark Hess at Maclagan, east of Dalby, received the penalty from the Federal Circuit Court after failing to comply with a Fair Work notice requiring him to back-pay the employee.

The French worker was employed by Mr Hess on a casual basis to do general farm work, house cleaning and to milk and feed cows.

A Fair Work inspector issued a compliance notice to Mr Hess in February 2020 after forming a belief he had underpaid the worker’s minimum rates and failed to pay him penalty rates for work between August and November 2019.

Mr Hess back-paid the employee $6150.37 in wages and $548.28 super only after the FWO began legal action.

Anik Dairy, owned by dairy major Lactalis Group, has named SubhashisBasu as its new chief executive officer.
