Quote:
Mr Kahn said when he commenced work as a train guard in 2010 he was paid a flat rate of $18 an hour, which had since increased to $22 an hour, and he did not receive penalties for weekend work or superannuation.

The award wage for a casual security guard working nights is about $30 an hour.

He approached the Fair Work Ombudsman regarding his rates of pay, but RPG refused to recognise him as an employee.

In a hearing, RPG told the Fair Work Commission Mr Kahn had never been an employee, and in fact was employed by AIG Security Services (AIG), a company it sub-contracted work to.

But the Fair Work Commission rejected that, saying he was a casual employee at RPG.

"I am satisfied that Mr Kahn was employed by RPG," Commissioner Julius Roe said on February 13.

But the commissioner rejected Mr Kahn's unfair dismissal claim, which was based on his shifts being reduced and relocated after he raised concerns about his pay.
I was punished for speaking out: Kahn

Mr Kahn said after he raised the issue of underpayment, RPG began to monitor him at work, by which stage he had been moved to another RPG sub-contractor.

He said he was sent a video, which was secretly filmed, showing him sitting down at work at 4:00am and checking his phone.
