SECUREcorp signs Enforceable Undertaking

Contraventions of Fair Work Act by Securecorp (NSW) Pty Ltd (ACN 108 335 235) trading as Securecorp NSW

Securecorp NSW has formally admitted to the Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) that it was involved within the meaning of section 550 of the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) (Act) in contraventions of the Act and the Security Services Industry Award 2010 by its previous subcontractors, namely WJS (Aus) Group Pty Ltd (ACN 167 442 033) (deregistered) and MIS Group NSW Pty Ltd (ACN 608 348 269), both trading as Manpower Integrated Services (Manpower), including:

  • failing to pay casual loading;
  • failing to pay penalty rates for night span, weekends and public holidays; and
  • failing to pay overtime for Mondays to Fridays, weekends and public holidays.


The conduct above resulted in identified underpayments of $201,677.55 owing to 49 security guards who worked during the period 6 April 2015 to 21 August 2016. 

Securecorp NSW has entered into an Enforceable Undertaking with the FWO (available at www.fairwork.gov.au).

Securecorp NSW has committed to a number of measures to remedy the contraventions including:

  • rectifying the identified underpayments and paying 5% interest on the underpayments;
  • establishing a hotline for employees and former employees of Manpower; and
  • committing to future independent wage audits to verify that employees of contractors are being paid correctly.


Securecorp NSW expresses its sincere regret and apologises for the conduct which resulted in the contraventions by Manpower. Furthermore, Securecorp NSW gives a commitment that such conduct will not occur again and that it will comply with all requirements of Commonwealth workplace laws in the future.
