Employers - disciplinary action for breaches of safety regulations and consequences of termination of employment

Employers take note when considering disciplinary action for breaches of safety regulations.  In a number of recent unfair dismissal cases Fair Work Australia has ordered the reinstatement of employees after taking into consideration the personal and economic situation of the employee.  Factors such as age, education, employment prospects, possible resulting financial hardship and the repercussions on the relationship with spouse/partner are seen as worthy of consideration together with their employment record, training intervals and a demonstration of real remorse and contribution coupled with an undertaking to improve in the future.  As a result, employers are advised to take into account the consequences of their occupational, health and safety policy on employees.
