If you are in imminent danger, get to a safe place and call Triple Zero (000). Tell the emergency response staff about the:
• dangers you’re facing
• place you’re in at the current moment
• your name
Emergency services will be sent to your location. Do not put down the phone unless you absolutely have to, or the emergency response staff on the phone tells you otherwise.
Ask your colleagues in your workplace on whether they’re also being exploited by your employer. Do this while you’re away from your workplace.
Get to a safe place outside your workplace (preferably your home, or a friend’s home), and contact any of the groups in the ‘Useful Contacts’ section of this page. Time is of the essence here!
When explaining your issue, remember to tell them:
If staff from the Fair Work Ombudsman or any workers’ union enters your place of employment for investigations, cooperate with them and listen to their instructions. You can tell them if you’re not comfortable meeting them at your place of employment, and they will make alternative arrangements.
