The university reports a clerical error in March 2018 led to it underpaying casual academics
It’s the end of a process that appears to have commenced in September when National Tertiary Education Union members compiled a report on underpayment (CMM September 22).
The university conducted an internal review and then commissioned an external investigation (CMM October 22).
And now management reports salary increases were incorrectly entered into the payroll system. The university is now advising people what they are owed – which it reports is under $100 “for most.”
As the total owed, observers suggest that the error total is around $1m.
