HR and workplace relations have become extremely complex, and navigating the legal issues often requires specialist assistance.
Assurance HR are here to get in the trenches with you. We have experienced HR staff who can come to your workplace and run disciplinary meetings, conduct dismissals, and navigate the complexities of Industrial Relations, ensuring compliance in every area.
The Fair Work Ombusdman has a number of steps that must be followed in specific order in IR cases. As a small busines owner it’s easy to find yourself missing steps, or not handling things the right way, which can lead to your decisions being legally overturned.
On a personal level, as a small business in a small team it’s much harder to reprimand an employee and then work alongside them that afternoon or the next day. Assurance HR will come in as an external third party that has no relationship or emotional connection with any of the parties, and ensure the process is followed according to current legislation.
