Loophole exploited to sack cleaners

Cleaners in the Illawarra region will be sacked today without the redundancy pay they’re entitled to.

The four workers, employed by cleaning company Spotless, now have nowhere to go.

A loophole in the Fair Work Act (2009) is reportedly being exploited by the company, with workers being offered casual work in New Zealand to avoid a redundancy payout.

Health Services Union Secretary Gerard Hayes tells Alan Jones some of the affected workers have been loyal to the company for over 14 years.

“They now cannot pay their rent, cannot pay their mortgage and cannot pay to put food on the table.

“We believe this is part of their business model that will manipulate the Fair Work Act. They have not sought to engage in a tender, they have effectively terminated the contract.

“The Fair Work Ombudsman is looking into this as we speak.”
