United Petroleum to face court

    The Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) alleges that United Petroleum Pty Ltd (United Petroleum) has failed to produce documents when legally required to for an investigation and will therefore face court.

    The investigation is related to United Petroleum’s potential franchisor liability, in connection with alleged contraventions of workplace laws at the Beaudesert Road in Coopers Plains, Brisbane outlet.

     “Notices to Produce are an important tool that Fair Work inspectors use to obtain documents we require for our investigations and businesses that fail to comply with these requests could face court action,” said Fair Work Ombudsman Sandra Parker.

    “Franchisors and franchisees should also be aware that enforcing compliance with workplace laws in the franchising sector continues to be a priority for the Fair Work Ombudsman.”

    United Petroleum faces a penalty of up to $63,000.

    A directions hearing is listed in the Federal Court in Melbourne on November 6, 2019.
