Sacked Servo Operator Wins Unfair Dismissal After Bizarre ‘armed Hold Up’

Sacked servo operator wins unfair dismissal after bizarre ‘armed hold up’

A service station operator has won his unfair dismissal claim, after Woolworths sacked him over a bizarre ‘armed-hold up’.

The company described the incident as an armed hold-up, however, the worker said it was not.

A full bench of the Fair Work Commission overturned the original decision made by Commissioner Bruce Williams.

Mr Williams initially found Woolworths had an entitlement to sack the worker for allegedly not following the company’s armed hold-up procedures.

Additionally, he found the worker failed to follow food safety procedures.
