    I cracked a mental, rand everyone and it resulted in me not having work anymore. A few people said let it go because I might miss out on work. Should have listened, but I really can't afford that! No savings, no other person to earn an income, no other money coming in.

    So they've stopped giving you shifts bc you requested money legally owed to you that they stuffed up 2 pays in a row?

    If what delirium said is correct you could have an adverse action (general protections) claim. Enquiring about your terms, pay and conditions is classed as exercising a workplace right. I don't know if you would be eligible if you are a casual though, but worth speaking to Fair Work.

    Unfortunately I have no real rights as a casual. I have a right to a safe workplace, a right to a fair wage, and a right to be paid, but not a right to further work. If they waited the extra week they would have been made to pay more, which is how I put it to them, so my pay went in saturday. But no, no more work

    Yes. No more work, and no other calls within that whole company.

    I would be repoable and DEMAND the company pay me immediately.

    It did happen once at an international company I worked for - the bank file failed or something. But they put it through the next night for us. Anyone who had fines/charges where reimbersed and the next pay we all got an extra $50 for any other expenses/hassles it may have created.

    You should def call Fair Work even though you are a casual.

    Some industries have a min amount of hours per month, even casual. In retail I think it's 4? I know that's only 80 bucks but it could be something until you can find something else.

    Since it's a big company, and if you don't decide to fight this, you should name and shame. Defamation is only defamation when it's not true
