Ask Your Own Australia Law Question
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

if there are no children that attend the premises of the shop this type of conduct is discriminatory against you and you raise a claim against the employer under the Fair Work Act.

I recommend that you try to mediate with the employer, and where the employer refuse you raise a claim under the Fair Work Act with the Ombudsman.

the law will protect you in this important matter.

If you need any further information please let know.

You can come back to this post any time to ask questions and there will be no further charges to you.

Don’t forget to rate me 5 stars as this supports me helping the community, and thank you for using Just Answer.
