    Hi K8canb

    You may get a favourable outcome in the end but it highlights what is often the situation in cases of dismissal.

    Yep! Agree with that Tiger and as you pointed out the structure in the contracts of employment are critical.

    With due deference to Tiger, Elaine I would seek advice from an employment lawyer. Some years ago when I worked for an IT Company in NSW we had an employee transfer from the US (not an Australian)...

    "the LSL will remain as it is at the time he moves/is suspended and begin accruing again when he returns"

    Hi Daniel

    I have had direct experience with Pivot (NZ origin) which I found to be fine in an environment with 4000 employees. There is also Remesys (Aus owned) which is supported by a number of...

  11. Reducing Pay

    Hi Gyro

    It is usually a little easier to reduce the pay of senior people as they are often closer to the real numbers although you didn't mention any quantum. Anything up to say 10% may not be an...

    Hi Gyro,

    One longer term suggestion I like to offer to my clients is that managers should meet with their employees on a formal basis for 20-30 minutes once a month. Most throw their hands up in...

    Hi Gyro, while I understand the points that Moz raises I think you can get data that will help you set a suitable remuneration for the Director. There is plenty of executive information around and...
