Dear Lifehacker, What are my consumer rights when buying a refurbished product from a business in Australia? How does it affect the warranty? I’m looking at some refurbished TVs from a reputable Australian dealer. The stated warranty is for 3 months, which doesn’t really seem “reasonable” for a TV, especially if you are still paying $1500-$2000 for it. What would the options be if the TV developed a fault which wasn’t listed in the description outside of that period?

Fast food chain Red Rooster has been ordered to repay more than $640,000 to staff members after a self-audit revealed approximately half of its workforce had been underpaid in 2011 and 2012. The affected staff members will now receive up to $3030 in backpay. The “takeaway” of this story is that you should always contact the Fair Work Ombudsman if you think you’re being underpaid.
