In this month’s edition of Workplace View:
- the lead article looks at how pranks and practical jokes in the workplace can backfire, particularly those involving email;
- there is an Employer Reminder about the role of support persons and the application of confidentiality to them in others’ disciplinary proceedings;
- the long awaited decision of the High Court in Commonwealth Bank of Australia v Barker is summarised in Did You Know?; and
- we test your knowledge about when an employee can be requested to work on a public holiday.
We hope you enjoy the October edition of Workplace View.
