MOS Burger Australia underpaid 285 workers across the company's six Queensland stores between 2011 and 2018, the Fair Work Ombudsman said. A Fair Work investigation into the company found it had paid unlawfully low flat rates to workers, and misclassified some employees as part-time when they were actually casual staff. The company currently has a workforce of about 90 employees who make food, serve customers, and work as store supervisors and managers.
