The Hard Part About Holiday Rosters and the FIFO Life

17/12/2012 05:00 AM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
Did you hear about the warning not to call in sick during the holidays issued to FIFO workers in the Pilbara last week? The news was widely reported in industry publications and mainstream media. The gist of the story was an employer told FIFO workers the only excuse they had for not showing to work over the holidays was ‘death’ and they expected to see a death certificate to prove it. While it brewed up a small storm of criticism about whether it was ethical or even legal to issue such a notice, it’s important to understand the motivation behind the not so tongue-in-cheek warning.
