A veteran Qantas flight attendant who won her job back in 2014 after winning an unfair dismissal case is back in the FWC, with the airline this week failing to block the tribunal from hearing her anti-bullying application.
The FWC has upheld the dismissal of an employee for a relentless six-week email campaign in which he made a "deliberate and concerted effort" to discredit IR and ER employees after his demotion for "racial bullying" of an Indian-origin colleague he claimed was "smelly".
A manager who failed to comply with a tribunal's $180,000 costs order must pay security of $25,000 before the Federal Circuit Court can hear her disability discrimination claim against her former "employer of choice".
The ACTU has taken a lifecycle approach in its latest report on the gender pay gap, showing inequity starts early for young girls who typically receive 11% less pocket money and persists into retirement, when women's superannuation balances are on on average less than half those of men.
An employer must compensate a bullied employee it forced to resign, after the FWC found he was unfairly dismissed for failing to comply with an unreasonable request to be examined by a company-nominated doctor.
