We love providing a helping hand to HR professionals dealing with tricky legal issues – whether it be assisting in-person or working remotely as a “go-to” resource when difficult questions pop up.  Australian employment law is a constantly changing minefield of information and our aim is to help you navigate through the clutter to find the answer you need.

 

SELECTED EXPERIENCE BANK

We have assisted HR clients with:

  • Managing terminations and redundancies – including providing the necessary termination documentation and meeting agendas to step-out the process – minimising the risk of claims for lack of procedural fairness
  • Modern Award analysis to determine appropriate pay classifications, making the call where the coverage is grey
  • Advising on extreme instances of misconduct, discrimination and bullying in the workplace – including conducting investigations, negotiating solutions, and advising on decisive outcomes when all else fails
  • Drafting policies and contractual templates that are adaptable across the board – including individual flexibility agreements, bonus and commission structures and restraint of trade agreements
  • Organising Award-compliant consultation procedures when a change to the workplace is proposed
  • Providing staff training – particularly for senior management levels – to establish an informed and collaborative workplace environment
