The NSW IRC has ordered the reinstatement from today of a decorated senior prison officer it dismissed for assaulting three inmates while suffering from a mental illness, but he will be denied backpay due to his misconduct.
Compensation discounted for sending abusive texts; "Chronic" mental health issues don't warrant extension of time; IT consultant not an independent contractor, says FWC; and Airport trips not private travel.
A postal worker who was backed by then shadow IR minister John Howard in postal union elections 20 years ago has today won compensation after the FWC ruled that Australia Post made a single "glaring error" when it summarily dismissed him.
Employee sacked for failing to disclose Uber employment; Dismissal for breach of new zero tolerance drug policy warranted, says FWC; Commission reinstates employee after finding employer's policies lacked clarity; CFMEU organisers acted improperly when inspecting site on safety grounds.
An employee who lodged a general protections claim only minutes after making a complaint to the Australian Human Rights Commission has had her claim knocked back by the FWC because of provisions banning "double dipping".
