Hitchcock Civil Engineering & Landscaping has agreed to have its books audited, following claims of wage theft. The company is a contractor on Canberra’s $A300 million London Circuit project, and it has strongly denied the allegations of wage theft by the Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining & Energy Union. CFMMEU official Zac Smith contends that more than 20 staff that Hitchcock has working on the project could collectively be out of pocket by $A70,000.
