My partner works in farming. Qld. Email the boss i will tell you the story They purchase by the ton manure and he bought

Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: My partner works in farming.
JA: What state/territory is your partner in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Qld
JA: What steps have they taken so far?
Customer: Email the boss i will tell you the story They purchase by the ton manure and he bought a small bag home for the garden which he got permission previously to do, he was dobbed on to the boss who lives in Brisbane. The boss phoned my partner and gave him the option to have a week off without pay or use his holiday pay till he comes up to sort out. His work mates r wanting to get him out to put a mate in his place and using childish punitive excuses to the boss to do it.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: About a month ago he also got a phone call from the boss in Brisbane saying that my partner is not following instructions or giving 100% which was totally false and he put him on probation for a month. Which is now up. His boss when in town never speaks to him man to man to get his opinion of all the other "goings on" on the fsrm.

John Melis, Expert

Hello, I’m John Melis, a solicitor in Australia, and I’ll be helping you with your question today.

​The detail you provided shows there is workplace bullying.

Bullying may involve a wide range of behaviour; for example, it includes harassment, victimisation, discrimination, abusive, insulting, offensive language or comments, and spreading misinformation or malicious rumours.

In your case, you fit into the category of bullying conduct in the broader sense. That means you will be able to raise a claim for compensation and workplace protection.

I invite you to make an application to stop bullying under the Fair Work Act with the Fair Work Commission.

You may use the general protection provisions form on the Fair Work Commission website. You may apply today.

Fair work will contact you to discuss your matter.

Does this help with your question today?
