When the Commonwealth Fair Work Act 2009 (the Act) was introduced in January 2010, it became unlawful for employers to take adverse action against an employee for exercising a workplace right.
This suite has been designed to educate anyone in your organisation with people management or HR responsibilities about the rights of employees that are protected by the general protections provisions of the Act. Given the increasing number of adverse action claims that have been raised against employers since the Act came into force, this suite is essential for the protection of your business against this type of claim.
By implementing this suite your organisation can:
- manage its employees more effectively with consideration of their protected rights
- develop an increased awareness of the consequences of taking adverse action against employees for a protected reason
- reduce the risk of costly and time-consuming legal proceedings arising from adverse action claims
- protect its brand and reputation from damage arising from breaches of the Fair Work Act.
The content contained in this program is suitable for any individual with the responsibility to:
- hire new employees
- prepare employment contracts
- determine and engage in the administration of employee entitlements
- manage employee performance
- deal with disciplinary matters up to and including the termination of employment.
The target audience also includes executive/senior managers or board members who may influence decisions affecting the employment status of people in their organisation.
