In a recent case in the Federal Court, a penalty of $9000 was imposed against a company for failing to allow two employees of the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union access to the company’s premises to conduct meetings with the company’s employees. The company admitted to contravening the (CTH) Fair Work Act 2009 in failing to allow the union access to the premises and allowed entry soon after the contravention occurred.
