Is your Enterprise Agreement a time bomb?

The public have expressed outrage regarding recent revelations surrounding Bakers Delights’ employment arrangements at some of its Victorian franchises.Earlier this week most media outlets jumped on the story of a young girl allegedly being paid just $38.50 for a 4 hour Sunday shift (which is reportedly around half of what she would be entitled to under the applicable modern award).It is clear from even a cursory review of the media articles and commentary on this matter that Bakers Delight is…See More

The Fair Work Commission has found that an aged care provider unfairly dismissed a personal carer when it erroneously relied upon an “eyewitness’” to substantiate an allegation of elder abuse.Deputy President Booth found that there was insufficient evidence to establish on the balance of probabilities that the abuse had taken place, and as such there was no valid reason for dismissal.This decision is important for employers as it provides guidance on the approach to take when weighing up “he…See More

Are former employees obliged to participate in internal investigations?

Posted on November 24, 2016 at 12:03 1 Comment

When investigating allegations of misconduct or other wrong doing it may be necessary to speak to people who are no longer employed by your organisation.

Often former employees are reluctant to participate in such investigations as a result of concerns over:

  • whether they may be personally implicated in some form of wrong doing as a result of the information they provide during the investigation;
  • the time and effort that may be involved, along with any costs they…
