Underpayment of Staff
Radio 97 owners, Broadcast Operations Group, have often been accused of a reluctance to pay experienced staff in order to cut operating costs.
In September 2009, Broadcast Operations Group was found to have underpaid a journalist and has been ordered to make a $10,000 backpayment. The journalist, who was studying communications at a Gold Coast university, worked part-time over a two-year period in the newsroom for Tweed Heads radio station Radio 97 was graded as a cadet. The Fair Work Ombudsman found that the Journalist was performing tasks that would normally be given to a Grade 1, Band 1 journalist under the Commercial Radio Journalists Award.
