The FWC has ordered Sydney's St Vincent's Hospital to reinstate a security supervisor it sacked after an external investigation found his complaint about indecent touching of a psychiatric patient was falsely made to bully or harass a colleague.
Unfair to sack supervisor for remark made in jest; FWC grants legal representation for case to be heard on "less emotive" basis; Employer's appeal against domestic violence sacking rejected by full bench; High-earning BHPB "number two" not protected from unfair dismissal; HR business partner's $138,000 salary exceeds high income threshold; Tribunal rejects sacked worker's bid for reimbursement of counselling costs; Ranger dismissed because contract ran out, not whistleblowing; and FWC "draws the line" on "meandering" unfair dismissal claim.
The FWC has ordered an employer defending an unfair dismissal claim to produce a consultant's bullying report sought by an employee it sacked after he drew a stylised p-nis on a workplace incident report, while it has refused to effectively "mandate" that the employer be represented by its employer association's lawyer.
A real estate agency's last-minute implementation of a new anti-bullying policy wasn't enough to stop the FWC from ordering it to cease bullying a property consultant that its sales administrator deleted as a Facebook friend after likening her to a "naughty little schoolgirl running to the teacher".
A legally-qualified former lecturer who claims she was psychologically-injured by alleged sex and pregnancy discrimination at a sandstone university has failed in a bid to join four academics as respondents to her case.
The FWC has refused to issue a stop bullying order to a Fremantle retail employee despite claims she received death threats from a cleaner at the premises, and another stall owner started rumours and stared at her.
The FWC has found that an employee, who was described as a "lackey" and had his appearance likened to a "dwarf" by colleagues was subjected to incidents of unreasonable behaviour in the workplace, but was not bullied because the behaviour was not "repetitious".
