Disgruntled dismissed employees are increasingly lodging General Protections (GP) applications instead of Unfair Dismissal actions. Unlike unfair dismissal claims, GP actions don’t require employees to meet a number of required hurdles before they can be lodged. GP actions don’t even necessarily require termination of employment, only ‘less favourable treatment’ by the employer towards the employee, prospective employee or even a contractor

We Australians have supposedly been basking in an age of entitlement.
The Federal Government’s recent Budget battles in part reflect its philosophical aim to change this. Treasurer Joe Hockey warned in an interview earlier this year ‘the age of entitlement is over, and we’ve got to move to a culture of opportunity and hope’. One thing Hockey has right is that many Australians are becoming more self-obsessed and self-absorbed than past generations. These claims are supported by Australian author Anne Manne, who observes that ‘society is starting to drown in a flood of ‘me, me, me’. Our culture is marked by a radical self obsession’. Manne cites a few interesting reasons why.
