JobWatch was featured in the Herald Sun on 23 June 2022, commenting on the lifting of vaccine mandates in Victoria and what that would mean for those workers that were dismissed because of their vaccination status.

Zana Bytheway, executive director of JobWatch, said “there are always exceptions and each case turns on its own individual facts”.
She said the lifting of the mandate didn’t confer any new rights on the unvaccinated teachers.
“Unfair dismissal cases have been very clear that dismissal will be justified where an employee doesn’t comply with a mandate,” Ms Bytheway said.
