The stuff up has left the company with a 430-million dollar back pay bill nationally.

BHP Australia president Geraldine Slattery said this is not good enough and falls short of the standards we expect at BHP.

“The company is working to rectify and remediate these issues, with interest, as quickly as possible,” she said.
