A Victorian fruit shop manager was allegedly paid $10 cash for each hour he worked overtime, leading to $115,000 of underpayments in fewer than three years.

The Fair Work Ombudsman on Monday said records were so bad at the business they had to use toll road records for the company vehicle to support the argument the manager worked an average of 130 hours each fortnight.

The company, its director and its operations manager face thousands of dollars of fines for the underpayments, poor record-keeping and allegedly giving the FWO false records.
