Recorded Webinar: The Challenges of Change Management in the Workforce

 

12th September 2019
Duration:  approx. 1 hour

 ANNOUNCING ONE HOUR LUNCHTIME WEBINARS
Organisational restructures often have significant consequences for the employees in a business, both from a personal and legal perspective. HR personnel play a critical role in managing the process and minimising disruption and legal risk, particularly when change leads to redundancy. With references to typical modern award requirements and the case law, this session covers:

  • Types of change to watch out for: rosters, job requirements, new technology, redundancy

  • Managing verbal and written communications with employees affected by change, consistent with consultation requirements

  • Following a legally defensible decision-making process for restructures that affect employment by:

    • Encouraging the decision-maker to lawfully and fairly select employees who are affected by planned changes

    • Exploring redeployment options, especially if the company undergoing restructure is part of a group

    • Lawfully documenting changes in the employment

    • Lawful provision of benefits to employees

  • Meeting the requirements for ‘genuine redundancy’

  • Exit consideration checklist

  • Case law update, including Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation v Bupa Aged Care Australia Pty Ltd [2017] FCA 1246
