What to do if you’re being exploited

February 16, 2016 Our Resources Tips

While the word ‘exploitation’ may sound severe, it simply means being taken advantage of.

And while it is fine to ‘pitch in’ at various times to help get a job done, this has its limits – and you should be recognised for it.

Examples of exploitation include unpaid overtime, being asked to work through a meal break or rest pause, clocking off and being told to return to work, being told you “can’t leave” until you have completed your duties.

If you feel like you’re being exploited, speak to your Shop Steward or Delegate or contact us.
