Kleenmaid manager not paid owed fees, court told
A FORMER manager of a Kleenmaid store based in Western Australia has told a court she was not paid about two months worth of management fees.
Collette Jimmieson gave evidence on Tuesday during a trial of Bradley Wendel Young, 49, who is accused of operating Sunshine Coast-based Kleenmaid while it was insolvent.
The company went into administration in 2009 and Mr Young has been charged with 20 offences including fraud and failing to prevent a company incurring a debt at a particular time.
He is currently on trial at Brisbane District Court, which is expected to continue for about another two months.
Ms Jimmieson was a manager at a Kleenmaid store in Perth and she said she received about $11,000 for one month's invoice for her management fees.
"One invoice out of how many?" she was asked by prosecutor Michael Woodford.
"Well it would have been until March, so technically it should have been three," she said.
The court was also shown sales details for her store.
In one email sent in February 2009, Ms Jimmieson was congratulated for increasing sales for that month, going from $129,272 to $230,279 between January and February that year.
But a document that showed projections for the rest of the year and was emailed in February, showed the store had $153,000 worth of sales in January and had recorded a net loss of about $25,000.
It also had sales for February were expected to be $310,000.
The trial continues.
