If only I could get a job like that

As if to prove my point about the problems at work, the Sunday Star Times has an article about a recent employment case, where stress at work made a woman ill:

When a new manager was employed at the store in 2003, staff relations deteriorated until Williams, on separate occasions, suffered an epileptic seizure and a migraine as a result of stress.


She was then told that she would be sent home if she came to work without make-up on.

I'm glad to say that this ended OK, she resigned from her job, but the court has ordered payments totalling $30,000.

But that won't stop WINZ sending people to Kimberleys work, or putting someone on a 13 week stand-down if they got fired for not wearing make-up.
