7-Eleven approves first round of Wage Repayments under new Program

7-Eleven today announced the approval of the first round of payments under the company’s streamlined Wage Repayment Program.

21 claims, totalling $686,000, have been approved.  7-Eleven anticipates the Wage Repayment Program will finalise claims at a regular cadence going forward.

The total number of wage repayment claims submitted stands at 4,008.  305 new claims have been lodged since 7-Eleven’s decision to assume responsibility for the repayment process.  Over the same period, only three (3) claims have been withdrawn.

7-Eleven CEO Angus McKay said “7-Eleven took the Wage Repayment Program process in-house in order to deliver a robust and efficient process that puts money in the hands of claimants as quickly as possible.

“We have spent the past few weeks building a claims assessment process that places legitimate claimant interests at its centre and responds to feedback from all key stakeholders. 

“We are confident that our Wage Repayment process delivers against these objectives, and are now absolutely focused on ensuring it meets our commitment to pay legitimate claims as quickly as possible. 

“7-Eleven is happy to be judged on our actions, and will continue to publicly report our progress as we move forward” Mr McKay concluded.

7-Eleven encourages any former or current Franchisee staff who believe they have not been paid their full entitlements to come forward and submit their claim to the Secretariat on 1800 619 802 or www.wagerepaymentprogram.com.au.
