STANS DAILY VIEWS ON LIFE

TUESDAY 26th OCTOBER 1999

               TODAY BEFORE A FULL BENCH OF THE INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS COMMISION IT WAS JUDGED THAT A WOMAN CONTRACTED OUT BY A LABOUR HIRE COMPANY HAD NO UNFAIR DISMISSAL RIGHTS . HAVING WORKED FOR A LABOUR HIRE COMPANY MYSELF . I HAVE TO SAY THAT I HOPE MORE BUSSINESSES DON'T START TO USE THEM . THEY REALLY DON'T OFFER NO JOB SECURITY TO THE PEOPLE WHO WORK FOR THEM . ALSO I FOUND AFTER AWHILE SINCE THE LABOUR HIRE COMPANY WAS ALWAYS PUTTING MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ON IN THE END THEY CONFINED YOU TO ONE JOB SITE AT TIMES . THE ONE COMPANY I WORKED FOR HAD A STEADY AMOUNT OF WORK COMING IN FROM A STEEL MANAFACTURING COMPANY . THIS COMPANY WOULD ALWAYS ASK FOR ME TO BE ONE OF THE ONES THAT THEY WERE SENT . WHAT I FOUND IN THE END THOUGH WAS BECAUSE THIS COMPANY WOULD SPECIFICALLY ASK FOR ME . I WASN'T BEING CONSIDERED FOR ANY OF THE OTHER JOBS IF THEY WERE FOR A LONG TERM BASIS . EVEN THOUGH A LOT OF THE SHORT TERM JOBS I WORKED AT I WOULD ALSO GO BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN AS WELL . ONLY PROBLEM WAS MAYBE YOU WOULD WORK A MONTH OR 2 AT THE STEEL FACTORY AND THEN HAVE NOTHING FOR A WEEK OR 2 WHILE THEY WAITED FOR THE STEEL COMPANY TO RING UP AGAIN . I AM SORRY TO SAY AS FAR AS LABOUR HIRE COMPANIES AND USING THEM INSTREAD OF EMPLOYING THE WORKERS IN THE OLD WAY . I DO HAVE TO DISAGREE WITH STAN ON THIS ONE . THOUGH I DO THINK THEY NEED TO DO SOMETHING FOR SMALL BUSSINESSES AND THE UNFAIR DISMISSAL LAWS . ONE THING STAN IS RIGHT ABOUT IS WOULD A COMPANY SACK A GOOD WORKER IF THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO . THE ANSWER OF COURSE IS NO . WHEWWWWW BIG SPEECH BY ME . BEFORE YOU JUMP OUT ON THIS PAGE I BETTER GIVE YOU STAN'S VIEWS . HERE THEY ARE .
 

                 A DAY WHEN A LOOPHOLE HAS BEEN DISCOVERED THAT ALLOWS EMPLOYERS TO ESCAPE
UNFAIR DISMISSAL CLAIMS IN ALL INDUSTRIES AND THE WAY EMPLOYERS CAN DO THIS
IS BY RECRUITING WORKERS FROM THE LABOUR HIRE RANKS AND I THINK THEY HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THIS FOR AWHILE AS A MATTER OF FACT ANYWAY

                THE DISCOVERY FOLLOWS A RULING BY THE FULL BENCH OF THE INDUSTRIAL RELATATIONS COMMISSION WHERE BY A TEACHER WAS FOUND TO HAVE NO UNFAIR DISMISSAL RIGHTS  WITH TAFE MANAGEMENT DESPITE HAVING A CONTRACT OF SERVICE .THE THEN SAID TEACHER WAS ACTUALLY CONTRACTED TO THE LABOUR HIRE FIRM AND THAT HER CONTRACT WITH THEM DID NOT GUARANTEE HER WORK IN FACT THEY DESCRIBED HER AS SELF-EMPLOYED

                 THE RULING CONFIRMED THAT BUSSINESS HAVE NO RESPONSIBILTY FOR EMPLOYEES RECRUITED FROM LABOUR HIRE FIRMS AND THE FIRMS THEMSELVES ARE NOT REQUIRED TO PROTECT WORKERS COMNDITIONS BEYOND AN AGREED HOURLY MINIMUM PAY RATE .

                  WELL A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SAY THIS IS GREAT NEWS FOR THE EMPLOYERS , THEY NO LONGER HAVE TO BE STUCK WITH STAFF THEY DON'T WANT  AND THEY NO LONGER HAVE TO BE TAKEN TO THE CLEANERS BY INCOMPETANT STAFF EITHER.
