Dear Administrative Appeals Tribunal,
I request a copy of the following:
- The earliest ten emails between AAT senior officer Sera Clemens & the labour hire recruitment firm Launch recruitment pty ltd. Please include deleted or archived emails within this FOI request.
- Please exclude from these emails, any emails that do not discuss salary or the terms and conditions for the employment of labour hire staff on premises at the AAT.
This FOI request attempts to find the rate set for labour hire staff by the AAT, when Launch recruitment was initially engaged. We have reason to believe that the rate set across the department was below the applicable award rate.
As this FOI request is centered on a matter of public interest (namely, the use of labour hire within Commonwealth departments, and whether proper practices were being followed); I ask that the usually applicable FOI fees be waived.
Please note: This request has been made under a different name to that of my colleague, John Smith.
Dear Mr Smith and Mr Thornton,
Please find attached a letter regarding your FOI requests lodged with the
Tribunal on 19 May and 29 May 2020.
