Canberra business HW Carpentry Solutions faces legal action from Fair Work Commission

A Canberra carpentry business allegedly ignored an order to pay compensation to an unfairly sacked employee.

Heath Wright and his company HW Carpentry Solutions will face the Federal Circuit Court next month after allegedly failing to pay the man $7650.

The Fair Work Ombudsman will ask the court to order Mr Wright and the company to pay the outstanding cash.

Mr Wright could also face a fine up to $10,200 and his company faces a maximum penalty of $51,000.

In August, the Fair Work Commission ordered $7650 in compensation be paid to an adult apprentice tradesman it found had been unfairly dismissed from his job.

But the 14-day deadline to receive the payout was not met and the employee lodged a complaint with the Fair Work Ombudsman.

The watchdog then launched the court action on the worker's behalf.

Fair Work Ombudsman Natalie James said the watchdog had unsuccessfully attempted to get Mr Wright to comply with the orders before taking the matter to court.

"Our inspectors made repeated efforts to engage with this business to try to resolve the matter, but were not able to secure co-operation," Mr James said.

"Compliance is fundamental for the integrity of the workplace relations system and employers should be aware that we are prepared to take action where appropriate."
