A worker applying for anti-bullying orders, and for the Fair Work Commission to report her employer to a WHS regulator, has failed to demonstrate she was subjected to repeated unreasonable behaviour in the workplace.
A commission full bench has quashed a ruling that a worker's dismissal, after a spate of inappropriate and aggressive altercations with his supervisors and co-workers, was harsh because the employer knew he had mental health issues.
In a landmark judgment, and the first of its kind, a Fair Work Commission full bench has found a worker was unfairly sacked for refusing to use new sign-on fingerprint scanners, but rejected the man's claim there was no evidence the technology improved safety.
A worker was lawfully dismissed for a loading breach and another incident affecting the general public, but an additional safety allegation levelled against him was "nonsense", the Fair Work Commission has ruled.
An employer has been ordered to withdraw a warning it issued to a worker for a safety breach, with a commission finding it condoned the prohibited behaviour through its supervisors allowing it to become normal practice.
