A father who fired his own son because he arrived late for a family dinner has been ordered to pay him $ 10,000 as compensation for unfair dismissal.

Pasquale Parente was released on March 10 from his position as assistant manager of the company Selective Smash Repairs of his father Egidio.

Fair Work Commissioner Sarah McKinnon discovered that a quarrel between the father and son after a family dinner was the catalyst for Pasquale's resignation.

During the argument, Pasquale was told to leave and never return to his parents' house or to the company.

She said prior to the altercation, Pasquale helped lead the company as an assistant manager and there were no indications that his performance was unsatisfactory.

"It is, in my opinion, extremely sad that what was once a loving family has caused relationships to deteriorate," said Commissioner McKinnon.

& # 39; Pasquale, however, has the right to file its claim and I must deal with it accordingly. & # 39;

Parente and his wife did not respond to the unfair dismissal claim and were not represented at the hearing.

As such, Commissioner McKinnon said the Pasquale version was undisputed and agreed that the relationship was beyond the point of restoring his position.

She mentioned a & # 39; real loss of trust and trust between the parties, which is probably a difficult obstacle to overcome, given the highly personal relationships involved & # 39 ;.

Pasquale claimed that he might have continued to work for the family business indefinitely and said he was certain that he would keep his job for at least another six months.

He would have earned in that time $ 1280.00 per week, or a gross amount of $ 31,200 during that period.

Commissioner McKinnon said that Pasquale finally came into service on September 2, 2019.

& # 39; In my opinion, this could have been achieved earlier with appropriate effort & # 39 ;, she thought.

When considering payments he has received since he got a new job and the amount paid instead of a $ 2560 cancellation period, Commissioner McKinnon found $ 10,115 an appropriate compensation amount.

& # 39; To minimize the potential risk of cash flow problems for the company, the compensation order is made payable in installments & # 39 ;, she said.
