28 September 2015 Warwick Ryan Featured In Smartcompany on Parmalat Food Products Unfair Dismissal Case

In March of this year, 63-year-old Christopher Tran was fired for failing to abide by company protocol in the event of a milk spillage. Despite the incident being Tran's second breach of policy since February, the Fair Work Commission argued that the worker's actions were indeed 'rational', albeit improper.
