Pressing for additional employment protection for terminally ill workers who need greater protection from heartless employers who utilise a loophole in the law to dismiss the dying due to their illness. Every person battling terminal conditions deserves the choice of how to spend their final months.
Your support for this campaign will help raise awareness and put pressure on the government to look again at the law and make the necessary changes to ensure that in the future, people battling terminal conditions will not have to worry about losing the dignity of dying in work.
Union member Jacci’s job had only been saved when her union threatened to publicly expose the firm. She said “I was actually astounded about what HR asked. It was all about capability, capability, capability - no concern for me as their employee and no apparent care that I was dying”.
The backing provided by our supporting organisations will really put weight behind our campaign. Combined with your help we will be able to push hard for changes to be made to the current law. Please take a little time to read about our supporters and what they do.
