The policy of ‘no jab, no job’

Michael McLaren

Helen Trinca, reporter, commentator and associate editor at The Australian Newspaper, joins Michael to discuss her recent article that looks at the dispute over the no jab, no job policy, following news that fruit and vegetable processor SPC broke no laws when it told staff they had to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

 

Ms Trince writes, ‘Ultimately, the decision on whether SPC can run a “no jab, no job” workplace rests with the Fair Work Commission – and even a positive ruling will not necessarily make it easier for other companies to follow suit.’

 

‘If SPC sacks someone who is not vaccinated, it could face ­action from the employee, with the FWC asked to decide whether the request was “lawful and reasonable”.’

 

‘Indeed, industrial lawyers have been working overtime in recent weeks as companies explore their options for making vaccination a condition of employment.’
