The Flight Attendants Association has successfully claimed a small business exemption from a manager's unfair dismissal claim on the basis elected officials are not employees, the FWC finding that in helping draft a ROC complaint she defied reasonable directions not to discuss the secretary.
A health care clinic manager has failed to persuade the FWC that her HR-expert husband's representative error and the so-called "reverse synergy effect" resulting from her son’s concurrent unfair dismissal claim explained her application arriving 32 days' late.
A presidential member of the FWC has prodded legislators to revisit "confusing" aspects of the Small Business Fair Dismissal Code in order to deliver on its promise of speeding parties' progress through the unfair dismissal jurisdiction.
Morning sickness justifies extending time; Legal representation granted in drug test dismissal case; Constructive dismissal by phone justified after vehicle log book failure; Refusal to accept a large settlement not unreasonable, says FWC; and "Informal chat" insufficient consultation for horse trainer redundancy.
An employer that the FWC found had "acted quite benevolently" and had tried to accommodate the needs of a worker suffering health problems has been ordered to pay compensation after mishandling her dismissal.
Employer can "effectively represent itself"; It's peculiar: Bench overrules refusal of name change; Employer pays for hitting snooze on investigation; Dating a no-no on employer phone, says FWC; and Hairdresser's evidence doesn't cut it.
