Deloitte Australia Has This Corporate Bullying Thing Down Pat

“It’s using COVID as a lever to change their working conditions. They have no choice — if they say no to the pay cut, they may lose their job, if they say yes, they might lose their job anyway.

“Most would have accepted a pay cut because they thought it would save jobs.

“In their final weeks they were not at peak earning capacity while being charged at their normal rate. These are acts of bad faith.”

Carly Stebbing, founder and principal of employment law firm Resolution123, when asked about Deloitte Australia cutting staff pay by 20% and then cutting the jobs of more than 700 employees, which Stebbing called an “act of corporate bullying.”
