Our Stupid Legal System – Government Fails to Stop Crazy Magistrates

“Businesses are again recommeded to be wary of the risks of employing staff, when Australian retailer, Woolworths Ltd, was convicted and fined $100,000 this month for inadequately training a worker who was seriously hurt while lifting a 20kg bag of onions. Although WorkSafe told the court that the person remembered seeing an induction video which had a portion on lifting when he began working at Safeway the business received a heavy fine. Woolworths pleaded guilty in the Melbourne Magistrates court on two charges relating to failing to provide and maintain a safe workplace and for inadequately training a 17-year-old casual worker. No Government MPs have yet announced their intentions to clean out inappropriate judiciary staff or to introduce legislation to protect business from employee’s own foolish actions or disabilities not obvious.”
