Nurse in job win


A NURSE sacked due to obesity and a bad knee after 25 years of service must be reinstated by South Australia Health as the decision was ruled “harsh, unjust and unreasonab­le” by the SA Employment Tribunal. The woman who worked at Lyell McEwin Hospital will receive almost three years’ back-pay to make up for the terminatio­n in November 2018.

Magistrate Stephen Lieschke ordered her reinstatem­ent, saying the dismissal “was not justified by the respondent’s own HR policies or by the applicable common law principle”.
