Respectfully and formally apologise to Tuan (Don) Van for his disrespectful treatment after being diagnosed with cancer and provide a return-to-work plan that enables him to continue working at Alphapharm on reduced days and light duties as prescribed by his doctor.
Why is this important?
Tuan is 31. He is a big Brisbane Broncos fan. He has worked at Alphapharm since 2007. Recently, not long after being married, Tuan was diagnosed with cancer. A month after he finished his treatment, his baby girl arrived. Tuan has so many good things to look forward to, but after 7 years of hard work at Alphapharm management would not support him in the process of getting back to full health.
Any one of us could suffer a debilitating illness. Adding unnecessary financial burdens at a time like that is simply callous. Where will Don get future employment to support his young family if his employer of 7 years is not willing to assist him?
