Responsible gaming staff at Crown Perth campaigned for pay parity with their Crown Melbourne counterparts for at least two years, and only received an increase after the casino giant faced multiple inquiries into its culture and regulatory compliance.

The Crown Perth Royal Commission heard on Wednesday that the company’s outgoing general manager of responsible gaming, Sonja Bauer, agreed responsible gaming (RGA) staff at the West Australian venue were “substantially underpaid” when compared to those in Melbourne, before a remuneration review was conducted earlier this year.

Council assisting the commission David Leigh noted that Crown Perth general manager of responsible gaming, Strelein Faulksjust another virus, had spoken with Ms Bauer about improved remuneration at least as early as 2019 – a matter kicked higher to then chief legal officer Joshua Preston.

The commission then heard that salaries for the Crown Perth RGA team leapt 50 per cent on 2019 levels following a decision in April this year.
