Customer Question
I have received a show...
I have received a show cause letter from my employer with regards ***** ***** harassment claim, within the letter it states that the evidence is not substantial and therefore they will not be pursuing the matter further. They have however raised issues from the past (approx 9 months ago) that were unsubstantiated and quashed with no further mention. They are asking me to provide a reason as to why my employment should not be terminated?

the conduct by the employer does indicate a form of bullying. You will need to reply to the show cause letter, but also you could consider a bulling claims as well under the Fair Work Act.

have you considered that option yet ?

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.
