GRAINCORP is confident it is on the cusp of finally resolve lingering accounting issues caused by ransomware attacks on a third party payroll provider just before Christmas, which has left some harvest casuals unpaid for around two months.
A GrainCorp spokesperson said while it had taken a long time to work through, the dedicated team in charge of resolving the issue was confident it would be finally sorted out within a week.
The attack has hit multi-national Kronos hard, with what was expected to take just a few days to correct instead dragging out over months.
The software glitch meant delays in pay for many harvest casuals.
