Thank you for your question. To Introduce myself I am a sydney based Solicitor and will do my best to provide you with relevant information to assist you.
I believe they are going to try and terminate my employment by saying they are unable to move me to another location within the company. Yes where I am working has midges or sandflys which bite me and I have an allergic reaction to.
I am having a meeting with management tomorrow morning and I believe that they are going to say they cannot relocate me and that if I cannot put up with being bitten by the midges/sandflys that they have no alternative but to let me go.
Yes they have said I am able to bring a third party but I have not had time to organise this. Should I postpone the meeting until I have time to arrange someone to come to the meeting with me. I really think that they may say that if the problem of the insect bites only appears to affect me with the evening/night shifts and that I should "drop" these shifts but to do this would be a huge impact on my salary. Should I postpone the meeting until Thursday?
Do you think it is my best interest to take someone with me? If I cannot find anyone to come with me on Thursday can I legally notify them that this is not possible and make them wait until I can find a third party to come along with me?
I hope this is of assistance. If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know before leaving any feedback.
