Mr HECTOR LAMOND (Illawarra) . - I hope the Minister in charge of the Bill will see his way to accept the amendment. A threat to dismiss is a more effective weapon in the hands of an employer than dismissal itself. And whilst our legislation provides that the employers shall not dismiss a man because of various things set out in the Act, the employer is yet able to attain the same end by threatening to do what the law forbids him1 to do. We should take this opportunity of making it clear that an employer shall not bv any threat of dismissal penalize a man, for having complied with the laws made by Parliament.
