Airservices faces Federal Court class action after redundancy program Rory Markham, the employment litigation director for Chamberlains, said the alleged contract breaches could have affected as many as 150 former employees.
"There was a large redundancy in 2016 the largest on Airservice's record where 150 people alone in the Canberra market at that level were let go," Mr Markham said. "The other thing that is significant is that if our case is right this would be the first time that a government has engaged in a breach of an enterprise agreement on a systemic level. "Breaches of employment agreements carry penalties of up to $52,000 per contravention. It might cost as much as $10 to $12 million with penalties on that basis." The alleged contract breaches generally applied to employees on individual contracts who were made redundant in the past six years, he added. Mr Markham said it was likely there were employees of other government entities who had been impacted by similar alleged breaches. "I think it is a broader issue that applies in the public service. It is most likely to apply outside of the key agencies of government. "I suspect there has been a malaise that has come in around employment relationships where they haven't quite held up to the enterprise agreements they are being entered into." Throughout 2016 Airservices offered redundancy oakley sunglasses outlet online packages to 523 employees in a bid to cut operating costs and halt shrinking profitability. Airservices profitability fell by 90 per cent between 2013 and 2015, from $45.5 million to $4.5 million. The entity is responsible for air traffic control, fire fighting and navigation oakley brown sunglasses services at a number of federally leased airports across the country. Critics of the redundancy program feared that the loss of frontline staff would impact safety at these airports. Airservices chief executive Jason Harfield has previously dismissed these claims as "irresponsible". A spokeswoman for Airservices said the entity was willing to work with any employees who felt they may have been affected. "Airservices Australia complies with its obligations as an employer, including those set out by the Fair Work Act 2009 and other relevant legislative and industrial instruments," she said. "It new oakley sunglasses would be inappropriate to comment on individual matters. Airservices is willing to engage with relevant parties to oakley cheap resolve any outstanding employment issues.".
