Younger workers can be particularly vulnerable to underpayment of wages.
David was a 17-year-old apprentice chef who was underpaid. He managed to get an order from the Federal Circuit Court requiring his former employer to pay, but he needed help to enforce that order.
David’s mother acted as his litigation guardian and encouraged David to seek help from LawRight’s Self Representation Service to enforce the judgment debt.
We advised David about the enforcement process and prepared a letter of demand to his former employer.
David sent the letter to his former boss, who paid the debt soon afterwards.
David was happy he did not have to return to court to enforce his right to receive his wages.
