Why are the NSW Taxi council and the NSW Transport and Infrastructure protecting the Law breaker bailor?
A bailee taxi driver is entitled to have five weeks holiday pay per year after performing required number of shifts. The driver in question made a formal request for such a payment to a Sydney taxi base. The taxi base in turn unfairly dismissed him for making such a claim and now it is a clear case of victimisation.
Anyway, the taxi base manager in question posted an unsigned frivolous and vexatious letter to the bailee driver. The driver in turn made a formal request under the law to reiterate the original demand. The brave taxi base manager is maintaining his silence!
The taxi driver would like to lodge a complaint to the Chief Industrial Magistrate’s Court. Now, the problem is who is the defendant? According to documents obtained from the ASIC and NSW Consumer Affairs the owner of the company and the bailor are not the same person! So, we do have some ambiguity here!
Naturally, the driver in question approached to the NSW Transport and Infrastructure and NSW Taxi Council Limited to properly identify the bailor of two specific taxis he have been driving for the last three years. To your surprise the supposedly independent umpire i.e. NSW Department of Transport and Infrastructure refused to assist the driver like the NSW Taxi Council Limited with some lame excuses!
So obvious question is, why are the NSW Taxi council and the NSW Transport and Infrastructure protecting the Law breaker bailor?
