This PDF digital download contains all the important information from this website in a simple to read, printable PDF document that you can hand or send on to your employer to make them aware of not only their liability under Section 44, but also, to put them on notice that you’re aware of your existing employment rights and protections.
DO NOT be bullied into returning to an unsafe work environment. The second you do, you have accepted the risks and potentially forfeit any future claim you may have against your employer.
Don’t take the chance until we know more!
