New Zealand-born Hamish Russell Alexander Watson, owner of the Café 63 brand, and his company 63 Racecourse Rd Pty Ltd, have been fined a total $170,000 for insisting staff receive a slice of their wages in food and drinks.

The 60-year-old Kangaroo Point man has been ordered to pay $40,000 and the company he solely owns to pay $130,000 by Federal Circuit Court Judge Michael Jarrett.
