wa and he is not employed - he pays his own tax and invoices the club for his labour - they do not pay super or any leave entitlements.
We have already been through this with the club last year - they told him that they would put him on full time wages (because he was working full time for wages at another club and contracting to this club). He quit the full time job and then they refused to put him on wages saying that the original terms of employment were for a contracted period of two years.
is this information that we give you confidential? we have no money to pay a lawyer and we have been told to ring the law advice centre tomorrow? will this help?
the reason that i ask about the confidentiallity is becuase our situation is made so much worse by another legal matter we are currently dealing with
one year ago my husbands brother murdered his parents and we are currently awaiting this to go to trial. my husband has no other family as he lost them two months prior to his parent murder. his brother has a very high profile perth lawyer. the wilful murder of my husbands parents has all but destroyed us in the last 12 months and with him loosing his job we have no income - having to take this matter to a lawyer is just another stress we dont need - the sum we are talking about is approx june - oct at $850 per week.
i am confused - if he is owed $20,000 in loss of contract for the next six months because they cut him short - they are not liable for this if he gets work becuase he has not lost earnings? Is this correct
the reason I made mention of our circumstances in regards XXXXX XXXXX husbands parents is not because I was comparing the two different legal matters - I was just trying to show you and work out if in the general scheme of things we won't really have much hope with this particular matter - we wont bother.
It would be greatly appreciated if you could give us the contact details of a lawyer in Perth that may be able to help us resolve this matter in regards XXXXX XXXXX husbands employment
