Getting the basics right to avoid issues seminar series in QLD

15 May 2018

Workplace Assured is partnering with Australian Business Lawyers & Advisors to bring to you the Small Business Employment Relations Obligations - Getting the basics right to avoid issues seminar series during the Queensland Small Business Week 2018, a Queensland Government initiative.

Queensland Small Business Week 2018 is an initiative of the Queensland Government to give small business owners the opportunity to learn and acquire new ideas, skills and tools to take their businesses to the next level.

After running a similar series of events like these throughout New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, we are delighted to be part of Queensland Small Business Week 2018 so that we can educate more small businesses about their compliance obligations and what they can do to avoid issues. It doesn’t have to be difficult! - Ben Foley, Workplace Assured

A key challenge for a small business is typically the lack of dedicated resources to proactively manage their compliance obligations and as such, can often encounter costly and time consuming issues.

Australia’s employment relations legislation is incredibly complex and therefore really quite easy to get wrong, says Dianne Hollyoak, a specialist employment relations lawyer with 21 years of experience.

The problem for small business owners is they more often than not lack any dedicated resources to proactively manage and stay up to date with their obligations so while considered important, it’s not often given much thought until an issue arises.

In this seminar series, our experts from Australian Business Lawyers & Advisors, Dianne Hollyoak and Lilian Zhou, will take attendees through the basics on how to be compliant with complex employment relations legislation:

  • Getting the basics right to avoid costly claims
  • Employment relations responsibilities for employers of apprentices and trainees
  • How to manage staff on Workers Compensation to ensure it does not turn into an employment relations claim
  • The hidden dangers of employing a casual workforce.

Spaces are strictly limited, so register and secure your spot today!
