Parliament passes 90 day fire at will bill and sick leave laws

Despite thousands of submissions against them, government this week passed legislation to extend the 90 day fire at will periods to cover all workers  and to allow employers to require medical certificates after just one day of sick leave.

Finsec President Kelvin Pycroft said the Employment Relations Amendment Bill passed this week includes a raft of changes that remove rights from working people. “These bills are an attack on working people. They are unnecessary, unpopular and unfair. And the campaign to stop them needs to continue.”

“Our union is already considering ways that we can help protect Finsec members from these changes,” said Pycroft.

“Our campaign will include putting political pressure on government and also working with employers in the finance sector to ensure these unfair new laws are not put into practice in our industry.”
