Dp works in a factory, ment to be as a factory hand, is paid as such, (so sweet f all), but also fixes the machines in the factory when they break, fixes the bosses cars, he did a complete gearbox change in the boss's jaguar the other week, all for no extra money.
They treat him like poo ie they pay him 38 hours a week yet expect dp to do overtime for no extra moiney, he is in a tin factory with a huge oven and often wortks in the roof and they only allow him to use a small pedestal fan in QLD heat.
Anyways in jan dps rego runs out in his car which is a death bomb so a week and a half ago dp tells his boss he is resigning on the 14th of jan (the last date of the car rego) as we cant afford a new car. They werent happy about it and just kept saying we will talk.
They came back to dp thursday and said you can resign xmas eve than we dont have to pay you over the week break. (dp is full time but due to a severe illness that happened just after dps holiday he has used up all off his sick days except for 3 days, so his boss is worried about paying him 2 days!!!!) can they do that?
I should also mention that the reason dp was so sick is he got a severe infection in his arm which needed to be left cut open and cleaned daily at the docs due to metal being in his arm from work.
They are also saying that because dp is choosing to leave they dont have to give him a seperation certificate.
I know dp will get a job by the end of jan as he is like that, very multi skilled and never has a problem finding work, but everythings shut over xmas and we cant live on no income
please help he is having a discussion tomorrow with the bosses
