Reports on wage subsidy breach figures produced quarterly

From Morning Report, 7:09 am on 29 May 2020

Government ministers aren't receiving up to date figures on businesses that breach the $10 billion wage subsidy scheme, and one Minister's office says "it's not something we're interested in".

The government is monitoring how much money is paid out in the wage subsidy and leave payment schemes, but the number of complaints, audits and money paid back is only being provided in quarterly reports.

Reporter Ben Strang has been looking into this - he speaks to Susie Ferguson.
