Customer Question
I have been dismissed...

I have been dismissed as head house keeper because or bad reviews from cleaners the manager hired. that i have put on report and had request to talk with manager about staff and issues for weeks but he's not been available or answering my notes or messages. he hired me as head of house knowing i have my own business to run also so id come train and organized the cleaners and do the rosters for him. i also brought my cleaners in who he wouldn't pay on contract but had to be hired by the motel so he didn't have to pay our company rate. he also sacked one of them and threatened another 2 if they not loyal to him they will be sacked also. where do i stand?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

I know of alot of breaches he's done. payroll disputes and non payment plus refuses to give us the payroll contact details so that we can sort out our pays, left us 2 weeks over christmas new year with no pay & advance of part of pay refused. south australia.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

We are house keepers but he has us doing yard work, cleaning bbq's and going there bins for recycling without providing ppe.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I put in a reoprt this morning but unti meeting was held was told to wait for outcome of meeting. i reported to co-workers that see shannon eves often that i need to catch up when he's not busy left notes on his computer for him. put in written warning on staff that he hadn't looked at or signed off on.
