Rockpool Dining Group pledges to fix payment issues "if errors have occurred"

They previously responded to allegations of underpaying and overworking their staff.

Rockpool Dining Group has announced that they started an investigation of its payment practices and pledges to resolve "any specific issues if errors have occurred."

“We care deeply for our employees who have been part of our success for a long time. If mistakes have been made they certainly were not intentional and we will rectify them. We reject claims that employees are mistreated due to our culture or policies," Rockpool Dining Group Chief Executive Officer Thomas Pash said in a statement.

The group is also completing an annual reconciliation of payroll to identify cases for employee salary back payments, which it says would take a "number of weeks" to finish. The company is being assisted by PwC, which will oversee the process.

RDG has also met with the Fair Work Ombudsman and says they will keep them informed.

Neil Perry said: “We take our duty of care seriously, for all of our dedicated employees. We are dealing properly with the issues raised, and are committed to providing a great environment for our employees who in turn provide a great experience for our customers – and have been doing so for nearly 40 years," RDG Culinary Director Neil Perry added.
