Past Sessions:

July 2020 - 
Workplace Consultation – Do your policies hold up without it?
 
The role of workplace consultation cannot be understated. Your business may have every policy and procedure available but if the workforce is not consulted they may be worthless.

Consultation, whilst important, is often overlooked as it can be time consuming and difficult to manage lots of feedback from staff.


August 2020 - Unfair Dismissal
 
Something most employers dread, an unfair dismissal claim from Fair Work. No matter how compliant a business is with their workplace relations, terminated employees can still lodge an unfair dismissal claim.

This Business Briefing Session is designed to enlighten employers on the unfair dismissal process and what to expect.

TCCI Senior Workplace Relations Consultant Abbey George has assisted a number of Tasmanian Businesses in her seven years at TCCI and will share insights into the process.


September 2020 - COVID-19 ready safety plans

The COVID-19 Safe Workplaces Framework supports businesses and workplaces in Tasmania to continue to operate, or reopen by providing minimum COVID-19 safety standards to manage the ongoing risk of COVID-19 in workplaces. 

TCCI strongly recommends businesses develop a COVID-19 safety plan to demonstrate your compliance with the minimum standards.
 
If you are unsure of what your business needs to do to complete a Covid-19 ready safety plan this short information session will provide guidance on:
 
  • Where to access the templates
  • How to complete the templates
  • What to do with your safety plane once completed
