Are you owed lost wages?

MORE than $2 million in lost wages is gathering dust in government coffers.

The Fair Work Ombudsman wants to give 9467 workers their share of $2.18 million that was collected from rogue employers.

The unpaid wages and en-titlements were collected as a result of the Ombudsman's campaign work, pro-active auditing and investigations.

When an employee is owed money and cannot be located, their entitlements are held in trust.

Ombudsman Natalie James said her office recently distributed $413,000 to 218 people.
