A Tasmanian cleaner was made redundant whilst on workers compensation.
While the state’s legislation is unclear on the issue, the United Voice member wasn’t giving up without a fight.
After discussions with her employer, the union member was able to secure an additional week’s paid leave, on top of her annual 4 weeks, after arguing her case with the backing of United Voice.
Everyone should have a job they can count on, and that means a job which fairly compensates a hardworking employee when they are made redundant.
Congrats to all involved.
