    Ferinstance not that long ago we had a "Personnel" Department, then we became "Human Resources" which I didn't like but got used to. Now we are becoming "Human Capital", which is (IMO) bloody offensive. Glad I'm retired.

    Just remember Shasta at work we were all just a number

    I liked the dude who's usually on NRL Tonite. "I'm 3 of them and done another 2". Interesting

    Got to wonder if Izzy has had a big under the table offer & wants out. Surely he can't be that stupid otherwise. If Qantas bails they'd have to sack him. Then again Rat's Arse isn't known as Forth Fumble for no reSON.

    I think that there is/are some very high up legal eagles that shares Izzy's beliefs and are willing to offer their services if his right to free speech is not upheld, regardless of the terms of his deal with RA. A precedent will then be set.

    I doubt free speech applies to employees of a company or organisation.

    I look forward to Qantas taking the moral high ground despite their continuing alliance with Qatar Airways and Emirates.

    Although I'm sure some legal eagles will argue, sacking Folau wouldn't impinge on his right to free speech. But your contract can stipulate that you do not do anything contrary to the company's code of conduct (see Spartan's post of the RA CoC).

    In fact, by sacking him, RA are saying that he's no longer under contract, so can't be held to their CoC; so it could free up Folau to post anything he cares about. Sacking Folau would give him more freedom of speech!

    Rugby Australia are set to sack Israel Folau following his social media posts on Wednesday night, leaving the Wallabies’ preparations ahead of the World Cup in chaos.
    The governing body failed to make contact with Folau over the past 24 hours leaving Rugby Australia with no choice but to sack their super star fullback.

    “Rugby Australia and the New South Wales Rugby Union have made repeated attempts to contact Israel both directly and via his representatives since 6.30pm on Wednesday, and at this point he has failed to communicate directly with either organisation,” the statement read.

    “Whilst Israel is entitled to his religious beliefs, the way in which he has expressed these beliefs is inconsistent with the values of the sport. We want to make it clear that he does not speak for the game with his recent social media posts.

    “Israel has failed to understand that the expectation of him as a Rugby Australia and NSW Waratahs employee is that he cannot share material on social media that condemns, vilifies or discriminates against people on the basis of their sexuality.

    “Rugby is a sport that continuously works to unite people. We want everyone to feel safe and welcome in our game and no vilification based on race, gender, religion or sexuality is acceptable and no language that isolates, divides or insults people based on any of those factors can be tolerated.

    “As a code we have made it clear to Israel formally and repeatedly that any social media posts or commentary that is in any way disrespectful to people because of their sexuality will result in disciplinary action.

    “In the absence of compelling mitigating factors, it is our intention to terminate his contract.”

    Its not a moral issue for Qantas it's a commercial one. Falau fails to meet community standards and Qantas don't want their logo on him in the news

    Excellent news. Good riddance to that filth. If I was him I would be devasted to not have made it to the World cup in Japan. 4 years of nothingness after being beaten and humiliated by almost every nation for 4 consecutive years. He could probably sense the Wallabies failing in the pool stages and got out now before his reputation is tainted by being in the worst Wallaby team of all time. RA actually do something right for a change...
