Hello
What exactly is the safety issue?

Solicitor: Daniel, Solicitor replied 2 years ago

As they are trying to use safety as a genuine reason to sack your father, it is grounds for dismissal.
It appears that perhaps having him stood down, with pay is only to show that they have done all they can to at least appear that they are doing the right thing.

I would suggest that as soon as he is terminated, file an application to fair work:

https://www.fwc.gov.au/resolving-issues-disputes-and-dismissals/dismissal-termination-redundancy/eligibility-remedies-0

They are able to make a judgement call in respect of the matter and give remedies such as up to 6 months pay and or his position back.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
