Unfair dismissal advice for employers
The Workplace Relations Specialists offer unfair dismissal advice to employer clients throughout Australia. Because we help employers deal with these problems every day, we are confident that we can offer you the best unfair dismissal advice and help you get the most cost effective outcome in any dispute before an industrial tribunal.
Of course, the best unfair dismissal advice that can be given is: put in place sound procedures that provide a clear and transparent framework to deal with difficulties that arise in the workplace. These will help limit your need for unfair dismissal advice by ensuring:
– all employees are treated in the same way in similar circumstances;
– issues are dealt with fairly and reasonably; and
– in the event of dismissal or dispute, the employer is compliant with current legislation for handling disciplinary and grievance issues.
WRS believes that where possible employers and employees should seek informally to resolve most matters that arise in the course of the working relationship. This approach helps minor concerns be resolved speedily without the need to recourse to formal action. It also limits disruption to work and reduces any personal embarrassment in discussing issues of concern.
All supervisors and managers should be trained and supported so that they are able to conduct disciplinary interviews. Our employee relations consultants can assist you by providing a source of sound advice on preparing for and conducting the interview and relevant legislation.
Every disciplinary interview should have at least three parts to it:
– an opportunity for the employee to respond; and,
– written records.
We can train and guide your managers and supervisors through the process of improving employee performance, conducting disciplinary interviews and if necessary representing you throughout the unfair dismissal process in the Fair Work Commission.
