TCCI welcomes Tasmanian Government support for the Business Hotline
 
NOTE: THE CORRECT HOTLINE NUMBER IS - 1300 559 112
 
The TCCI is working with the Tasmanian Government to provide support and advice for the business community in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
TCCI CEO Michael Bailey thanked the Tasmanian Government for providing swift support to expand the range of services available through the TCCI Business Hotline.
 
“The TCCI Business Hotline is open to any Tasmanian business that has questions regarding the COVID-19 pandemic,” Mr Bailey said.
 
“The TCCI Business Hotline (1300 559 112) will ensure businesses are not left in the dark.
 
“The Hotline will triage business enquiries related to COVID-19 and where required refer you to relevant organisations, services or provide advice on how to manage your workforce.  Calls will also be used to identify areas of need that are not currently serviced. Where gaps are identified, the TCCI will attempt to provide information or advice relevant to the particular issues, or as required, advocate to state and federal government to address business needs.

“As part of the Tasmanian Government’s Stimulus Package, TCCI is now able to expand the range of advice available through the Business Hotline, especially in relation to supporting businesses affected by COVID-19 to manage their obligations in relation to industrial relations issues.  These issues may include workplace health and safety, employment obligations, workers compensation and changing workforce requirements.
 
“I would encourage any business that is unsure of what steps to take to call the Hotline immediately.”

Support may include (but is not limited to):
  • Advice in regards to industrial instruments such as awards and enterprise agreements
  • Modern Award coverage and interpretation
  • Rates of pay, loadings, penalties and allowances 
  • Leave entitlements/accruals – annual, personal, parental and long service leave
  • Obligations under the Fair Work Act 2009 
  • Record keeping requirements 
  • Support and advice to manage workforce contraction such as contract variations, stand downs and redundancies
  • Development and implementation of policies and advice in relation to:
    • Leave
    • Flexible work arrangements
    • Working from home
    • Stand down
    • Isolation
    • WHS 
    • Hygiene
    • Duty of care implications 
    • Provision of advice on employee management including business closure and risk management
