A little birds eye on the bay island sporting goods chain Aussie Outfitters (AoA).
The company’s website says its products “provide a great deal of value to customers and our local communities”.
AOAs products are manufactured by AussieOutfitters in the Perth suburb of Koyamisville, near Perth.
But the company has been under fire recently after a Facebook post posted in March by a manager at its Koyamsville store revealed that employees were not paid overtime, was not required to report overtime and that managers were told not to refer to “employees who work on a non-regular basis”.
“We are committed to ensuring that our employees are paid at a fair rate and have the opportunity to work, including on holiday,” the post said.
“This is also an issue with the management team.
There have been instances of excessive overtime and we would like to reassure our staff that we will not be using any form of overtime and will not use this as a way to get pay and time bonuses.”
In the post, a manager said: “We have been told that we cannot use overtime as it is a non working day and we do not have the authority to tell people to not work on their non working days.
If you want to get paid, please call us on 1300 651 765 or email [email protected]”
The post has since been deleted.
AOA has not responded to a request for comment.
