I would love some advice if anyone can help. I am asking on behalf of a friend of mine – he is an employee of a company that is contracted as a security contractor to a business here in Canberra.
He also happens to be in the country on a student visa – one of the stipulations is a set number of hours he can work per fortnight allowing for time to attend Uni, study etc. All fine so far. New manager (ie the client) asks to see his visa (presumably to check conditions) and his Uni results. That seemed excessive – esp. the request to see his results. As he didn’t take proof of his academic results in, the client asked their supplier ie his employer to take him off the roster.
That doesn’t seem ethical – yet alone legal. Is it worth pursuing or does he just have to cop it? There are other colleagues who could be facing the same fate.
