Aboriginal corporations as employers - A practical workshop on understanding obligations and managing your workforce

Jackson McDonald (one of FDIO's sponsors) is offering a half day workshop for Aboriginal corporations in the area of employment law and human resources, presented by our Workplace Relations team. The event has been tailored to consider the employment  issues and concerns we often see arising in Aboriginal corporations.

You may have heard comments along the lines of:  

  • “don’t worry, restraint clauses are unenforceable”
  • “you can’t fire anybody unless you have given them three warnings”
  • “if you pay an all inclusive annual salary or hourly rate you don’t have to worry about paying in accordance with an award”

This workshop aims to dispel these common employment law myths and will also provide a practical understanding of how the workplace relations system operates, clarify minimum obligations and provide tips on how to ensure your organisation is complying with the law.   

At the conclusion of the training, participants will have an improved understanding of their organisation’s legal obligations and be better placed to effectively and independently manage employment issues as they arise. 

The session is aimed at directors, managers, human resources personnel and anyone else involved in the supervision of staff.  However we also encourage board members and CEOs to attend, given that they can be personally prosecuted for contraventions under the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth).
