    I really wouldn't take it to the media, not yet anyway. They're aggressive and ruthless and I think they'll just pi$$ the company off rather than getting them to work with you to make positive change. I think your current path of escalating it to more senior management is a better idea.

    Thanks, I'll speak to the other employees are see if they are interested in talking to the regional manager.

    It's high unethical why isn't that a crime yet?

    I don't know, I'm an honest person & run an honest business, it just infuriates me.

    I'm not intending of staying with them a moment longer then I can, I'm ashamed to have my name tarnished by this business.

    So you signed the contract based on a verbal undertaking that you would get the extra things promised, even though they weren't specifically stated in the contract? Ie a conversation along the lines of "oh don't worry, it's just the standard contract but we will do this, that and the other as well"? Or have I misunderstood?

    In my previous work as a paralegal I wrote contracts and agreements on a daily basis. Albeit they were not employment contracts, they were business contracts, but if any false representations were made (even verbally), which influenced a persons decision to enter into a contract, it made the contract void. Even if it was signed, witnessed, dated, all t's crossed and i's dotted. It can come down to a bit of 'he said, she said', but if there are other employees that have experienced the same thing, then you may have a chance. I would suggest contacting a lawyer and Fair Work Australia.

    Just be aware though that becoming litigious against an employer, or going public, may affect your chances of finding future employment within your industry. Sad, and unfair, but true

    Starting off with taking it higher within the organisation is a good first step.

    All the best!

    what are you wanting A Current Affair to do? I often see stories on there and wonder what the outcome is for ppl who contact them seeking help...

    Is run the contract past a lawyer - I've read a lot of employment 'contracts' in my time a good portion aren't worth the paper they're written on... Or at the very least have a chat with Fair Work.

    Speak to the regional manager first. Legal action or media should be reserved for after exhausting the regular avenues

    Yeh be careful with a current affair type shows, I had clients who went on one of those shows complaining about a big franchise group and they ended up being sued for slander and had to pay out a few hundred thousand dollars in legal costs ( and had to sell their house ) the show totally edited out half of what they said and they had no control over what they put on the show

    You can't complain/go to a lawyer/A current Affair just because you signed a contract you don't agree with. The time for not agreeing is at the time of signing. You snooze you lose..
