I covered a cake in butter cream then refrigerated before covering in fondant. However, as we all know you should never refrigerate a cake already covered in fondant. So my question is, what can I do if the butter cream softens when the cake is not refrigerated and the fondant becomes uneven where it appears that the butter cream has slipped under the fondant ?

This isn't true at all. Many people refrigerate their fondant cakes with no issues. The condensation that develops on the fondant will evaporate. You just have to take care not to touch it when it comes out of the fridge. You can do a search and see that tons of people refrigerate their fondant-decorated cakes, and I am one of them.
I always refrigerate my cakes, every single time, all the way up until it's time for delivery (or sit it out for a bit).
And....I put a thick layer of BC under the fondant too. I would expect my customers that get fondant would appreciate the same amount of BC as a non fondant covered cake.
