Intriguing hypocrisy

‘As an aside, I find it intriguing, that in many unfair dismissal cases, the dismissed employee will tell me that he/she was an invaluable asset to the employer. The dismissed employee often cites an extensive range of skills and wide experience in order to challenge the basis for their dismissal. Yet, in this case, a senior employee, being paid well above the high income threshold, contends that he was covered by a Modern Award and argued he was really just an unskilled worker with little independent discretion or responsibility in his job. The objective evidence does not bear this out.’
