Can a worker shoot through to fight bushfires?

It’s bushfire season and hardly a day goes by seemingly without a news story about out‑of‑control bushfires.

Many workplaces have volunteer firefighters in their midst and employers can be unsure of what to do during bushfire season.

Employers need to be across the workplace laws regulating when volunteer firefighters can be absent from work.

An employer who gets it wrong can be faced with an expensive legal claim in the Fair Work Commission.
