Hey hospo voice folk! It’s bleak times we’re living in and I’ve just been fisted by my employer. Was hoping to get some help/advice. I got hired full time in February before the shiteth hit the faneth. A couple of weeks ago the boss didn’t give me a choice when he sent me a new contract and switched me to part time instead, I was ok with that and continued to work.
Today, he hits me with the news that he is forced to switch me to casual next week, completely eliminating the chances for me to get the JobKeepers payments/assistance. That was my only hope for getting any help in these tough times, I’m not a PR (yet) and don’t have access to Centrelink/Newstart etc and he is aware of that. I am feeling really screwed right now and really short changed. I don’t know what to do! Any advice on who to speak to regarding the legality of this would be great hospo fam! Many thanks in advance!
