We are taking a class action on behalf of labour-hire workers who have been exploited through triangular employment arrangements. Labour-hire firms are recruiting workers from school, Work and Income and off the street onto contracts that do no not meet the requirements of the law. These workers are then sent to work in dangerous industries for low pay and no security of hours.
For example, hundreds of workers in Foodstuffs’ distribution centres are on zero hour contracts with low wages and no security of hours. These workers are doing real work, in safety sensitive areas, operating heavy machinery and often working in chillers and freezers for prolonged periods. Foodstuffs is a highly profitable company owned and run by multi-millionaires.
Workers are employed in dodgy triangular employment arrangements that Foodstuffs use to avoid their responsibilities as an employer. Workers can be dismissed without any procedure or without even being given a reason. Workers are treated as casual despite some working years in the same shift pattern.
We must stop companies like Foodstuffs and the labour-hire firms they utilise from circumventing their legal obligations as employers.
If you have been in a third-party employment arrangement in the last two years we would like to hear from you!
