Australia’s 7-Eleven stores raided in wage scam probe

At least 50 stores at the scandal ridden 7-Eleven convenience store chain in Australia were raided on Thursday morning as part of an expert panel’s review of underpayment of employees.

The raids were coordinated across the country with 150 staff from the Fels Wage Fairness Panel and Deloitte visiting stores unannounced to seize documents including rosters that aren’t available from head office.

The 50 stores that have been targeted include some of the most egregious alleged underpayers of wages and falsifiers of payroll records.
