This case is a must-read for working parents
In a recent case, the Fair Work Commission considered the consequences for an employee who stretched his personal/carer’s leave too far. The applicant was employed as a car detailer at a Toyota dealership in Yarrawonga. One day in June 2019, the applicant notified the respondent that he could not attend work as he needed to care for his ill son. He took one day of personal/carer’s leave.
