Ms Hannah said it was 'good news' for workers and compliant businesses, with $297million of the total recoveries coming from large corporate employers.

'The Fair Work Ombudsman's strengthened compliance and enforcement approach has seen another record amount of back-paid wages for Australian workers in the last financial year,' she said.

'This is a great result for the workers who have been reunited with their withheld wages, and also for the businesses that pay correctly and are no longer at a disadvantage as a result.'

The Fair Work Ombudsman has launched up to 50 investigations into large corporations that have self-reported underpayments.
