    McDonaldÂ’s has been fined for illegally employing a 14-year-old girl to work several night shifts, including one shift of nearly

    15 hours.

    The companyÂ’s Australian arm was fined $15,000 in the Perth MagistratesÂ’ Court for employing a child under 15 to work at its Rockingham outlet, south of Perth, at times that were unlawful.

    The child worked five separate shifts that were completed after 10pm, in breach of the Children and Community Service Act.

    One shift began at 3.21pm on a Saturday afternoon and did not conclude until 6am the following day.
