Forklift Operator Sacked For Using Mobile Phone Loses Unfair Dismissal

Forklift operator sacked for using mobile phone loses unfair dismissal

A forklift operator sacked for using his mobile phone on the job has lost his unfair dismissal claim.

The worker used his phone twice in two hours, in contravention of his company’s workplace safety policies.

The Fair Work Commission found the employer had a valid reason for dismissal.

It also found the dismissal had not been harsh because the man’s supervisors gave him a previous warning about phone use just two hours earlier.
