Stop Scott Morrison & Fair Work Commission discriminating against casual employees!

If you believe in equality, in equal legal and human rights for ALL Australians, this is the most important petition you will ever read and sign.

Currently in Australia, paedophiles, rapists, murderers, thieves, terrorists and refugees enjoy greater legal and human rights – rights to lawyers, rights to have the merits of offences tried in courts, rights to appeal to higher courts - than Australia’s 2.6 million casual employees.

You will get mad as hell when you read how:

Australian Federal Governments have since Paul Keating in 1994, implemented apartheid laws to deliberately discriminate against casual employees, and how your government’s industrial relations agency, the Fair Work Commission, systematically and consistently violates your legal and human rights, and strips you of your dignity – I should know as it happened to me; and  

Work Choices is alive and well and flourishing in 2019, thanks to former Prime Minister Julia Gillard, the principal architect of the Fair Work Act 2009, who resurrected the old Work Choices law and disguised it as Sections 382 to 384 of the Fair Work Act 2009! Sections 382 to 384 (the unfair dismissal sections) directly affect Australia’s 2.6 million casual employees, discriminating against them by imposing segregationist legal standards that do NOT apply to other employees when bringing unfair dismissal applications. An earlier iteration of these laws - Regulation 30B of Work Choices – was declared in 2001 by the Federal Court of Australia as unlawful since they discriminated against entire classes of casual employees.

Such flagrant, deliberate discrimination and segregation must stop … NOW!

A highly-paid public servant, Adam Hatcher (Vice President of the Fair Work Commission) has stated in writing to me that: there is no legal equality under the Australian Constitution, and that laws that discriminate against Australia’s hard-working casual employees, stripping them of their legal rights and human rights are lawful, constitutional, and even beneficial!

The Fair Work Commission is unlike any other legal jurisdiction: it’s the bizarro-world of Australian legal jurisdictions, described by barrister 

So, the Fair Work Commission:

Strips you of your basic legal rights, of your basic human rights, of your personal dignity;

Denies you the right to have the merits of your case heard, holding bogus “jurisdictional hearings” in which the Commission decides whether it will hear the merits of your unfair dismissal application;

Denies you legal representation;

Denies you the right to appeal decisions unless your appeal is in the so-called “public interest”;

Rewrites your entire work history by imposing artificial “probationary” periods upon you - not at the beginning of your employment, but at the end - so that, even if your employment is long term, it’s actually considered short term; and

Accepts perjured and fabricated evidence, refusing to follow these matters up with the Australian Federal Police.

Sections 382 to 384 contravene the United Nations International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights: Article 14(1) (equality before the courts and tribunals); Article 2(1) (equal access to courts and tribunals), and Article 26 (equality before the law and entitlement to the equal protection of the law).

These laws are a national disgrace; a national and international embarrassment. If any other Australian court or tribunal operated in the same way as the Fair Work Commission, hordes of QCs would pound down the doors of the High Court of Australia demanding that their clients’ legal and human rights must be protected. But, since you are dealing with casual employees, your fellow Australians who are among the most vulnerable members of Australian society, these laws are deemed “acceptable”, lawful even.

Remember: your Federal Governments have previously discriminated against indigenous people, gay people, and same sex couples. Your governments believe they can impose apartheid laws on you. Send a clear message to the Federal Government that you won’t take this!

Don’t be complacent like your politicians, public servants and the media who don’t give a toss about these critical issues. Don’t let your Federal Government strip you of your precious legal rights and human rights.

Please sign this petition and help me smash Work Choices, the Fair Work Commission, and the Federal Government’s apartheid industrial relations policies.
