INDUSTRIAL LAW – appeal against judgment of the South Australian Employment Court (SAEC) declaring that the Appellant had contravened s 323 of the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) in three respects – whether the findings of a SAEC Deputy President regarding the Respondent’s starting times were in error – whether the Appellant was denied procedural fairness because an alternative claim advanced and upheld concerning the Respondent’s meal breaks had not been pleaded – whether a finding that the Appellant pay $67.13 together with superannuation and interest in respect of unpaid overtime was in error – consideration of whether the SAEC constituted by the Deputy President was a Court of summary jurisdiction – appeal dismissed.
