My work place opened in February. All the staff are casual but haven’t been there for 12 months as the restaurant didn’t exist 12 months ago!
I took 2 weeks off, at the beginning of March, to have knee surgery. I paid for this privately as the public system had a 12 month wait list and I could keep working in pain for that long. During this time we put an offer on a house, just Need one payslip to get the mortgage. I had a letter to confirm I would become a permanent part time employee starting back 25th March. Then the closure of restaurants happened. Both my partner and I lost all shifts and a house.
