An electrician known as the ‘Nazi Sparky’ has been penalised $30,000 for ignoring an order to pay compensation to an apprentice.
Simon Hickey unfairly dismissed the young worker after falsely accusing him of theft.
The Fair Work Commission subsequently ordered him to pay $14,500 compensation to the worker.
Hickey later appealed the order which was dismissed in March 2019. Since then, he has refused to pay the compensation.
Hickey also underpaid the worker $6,000 in wages and superannuation.
