A FORMER migrant worker will receive more than $13,000 in back-pay after being underpaid for almost a year by a Perth wholesale sushi supplier.

Prime Enterprise Holdings Pty Ltd, which operates a factory, catering services, and 10 Asian fast food outlets and restaurants across WA, underpaid the worker $13,047.88 over 11 months, the Fair Work Ombudsman found.

The worker, a Chinese national working in Australia on a 457 spousal visa, will receive the full amount.

The company will overhaul its workplace practices under a new enforceable undertaking, a Fair Work statement said on Wednesday.
