In December last year, one of our contributors reported on some of the methods Metro Trains Melbourne use to Bully and Harass their workers.
We have since learned that Metro have actually taken this a step further, with some immediate Supervisors actually accompanying their employees INTO the doctor’s office and then arguing with the Doctor over the employee’s inability to return to work.
Now, Metro Trains Melbourne have introduced a new mandate on their compulsory harassment schedule:
The “Welfare” Check for employees who are sick.
Employees who report as injured have already been stalked and harassed by management in their hospital rooms (with internal “investigations” reporting “no fault found”),
now employees who report as sick will be subjected to further harassment and phone calls from overzealous management in an effort to drive staff morale to an all time low.
Of course, Metro Management use the terms “welfare” and “support”. Because everybody knows that corporate managers only want the best for their employees.
What’s next? Management visits to the homes of sick employees?
When are Metro Trains Melbourne going to change their ‘Company Values’ to reflect what they really believe? That they OWN their employees and that their employees have NO right to privacy outside of their workplace?
Perhaps it’s time that the Fair Work Act is changed to protect the employees right to privacy?
