A close friend of mine was sacked from his job. Yet the employer stated that there was no reason for leaving on the separation certificate. Two appeals to Centrelink later, he is stuck with the 8 week suspension of payment. No job, no money and no help from Centrelink. So what it comes down to is that according to our government, if a boss falsifies statements, bullies and sacks you, and doesn’t pay you right, that its too bad, you will be punished anyway.
If there is anyone out there that knows of any work available in Brisbane that can be accessed by public transport. Please let me know as he really needs some money coming in, so he can survive… LITERALLY!!!
Centrelink and human rights.
