LEIGH SALES: The workplace watchdog has ruled out taking legal action against a company owned by
the wife of Opposition Leader, Kevin Rudd. An investigation by the Office of Workplace Services has
found that Therese Rein's company did breach the Workplace Relations Act by underpaying 107
workers. But it's concluded that it was not the result of deliberate or careless conduct, and the
company had voluntarily corrected the underpayments.
