Ray Mackereth in Federal Circuit Court for Unpaid Employee Entitlements

Federal Circuit Court documents tell a devastating story about what appears to be very shameful conduct on behalf of our community hero – Ray Mackereth, when he ran his gay sex on premises venue Klub Kruise.

There is so much, we are going to break this down into parts and this is the first of three installments. Read on…

On 23 June 2014, Brenton Larcombe commenced action in the Federal Circuit Court,  where he clams Mr Mackereth spent his long service leave, annual leave and notice on day to day business needs including funding a late model jeep, a lavish lifestyle and business excess, all while his company floundered.

Larcombe tells the Court that Mackereth has had dodgy dealings that go back a long way, even as far as 2009 while Mr Mackereth putts around in a late model jeep and living the good life all the while Larcombe remains out of pocket:

  1. Annual leave, up to $12,471.10;
  2. Long Service Leave, no less than $13,172.32;
  3. Notice on Termination, $6080.00; and
  4. Superannuation $7,235.96.
  5. THIS TOTALS $39,034.38 THAT LARCOMBE ALLEGES MR MACKERETH WAS INVOLVED IN UNLAWFULLY USING, TO HIS DIRECT PERSONAL OR COMMERCIAL BENEFIT RESULTING IN MULTIPLE SERIOUS CONTRAVENTIONS OF THE FAIR WORK ACT IN HIS CAPACITY AS THE SOLE DIRECTOR, COMPANY SECRETARY, PUBLIC OFFICER AND 80% SHAREHOLDER OF KLUB KRUISE.

Larcombe is also seeking pecuniary penalties (fines imposed by the Court) in the “very high range” which could exceed $30,000.

Mackereth limply “fires” back blaming his landlord, basically saying “I didn’t done it, blame Josef” Ray Mackereth responds to Larcombe Lawsuit blaming Landlord.

But the big man wanted “further and better particulars” and Larcombe wanted his superannuation added, so an amended application was filed Larcombe’s Amended Claim Against Ray Mackereth.

A special hat tip to Deeje Hancock who knew someone that tipped Raymackereth.com off with this explosive story. It includes ASIC documents containing false information signed by Ray Mackereth being given to the liquidator, misleading advertisements in Q News and nearly $190K of unpaid debts, including him gouging straight from the retirement funds of his staff.
