    I have to partially disagree with Tiger on a couple of points.

    The resignation requirements for employees are (mostly) similar to Fair Work Act requirements for employer notice periods, but they...
  3. You haven't told us the nature of your employment...

    You haven't told us the nature of your employment contract, and I think that is a critical factor in this matter.

    If you and the agency signed a full-time or part-time hours contract, then the...

    I think that the main benefit of having an HR representative present will be to provide advice to the manager and the employee on the processes involved in the performance review, and to assist in...

    Hi Sam,

    I don't think that you understand that an approved flexible working arrangement is very different to personal/carer's leave.

    Personal/carer's leave is definitely an appropriate leave...

    Award coverage is NOT determined by the salary paid to an individual - it's determined by whether the worker is performing a role that is covered by a classification in an award (taking into account...

    An Unfair Dismissal claim is not out of the question, but there would definitely be some hurdles to jump over. Your friend would have to:

    I'm not convinced that the process is flawed. I gather that:
    1. Three Team Leaders have made complaints to a senior manager. The complaints appear to have been taken seriously.

    To have 3 team leaders refusing to work for a manager must raise a red flag. I would suggest that each of the three is spoken to and given an opportunity to raise their concerns/complaints about...

    The approach that I've always used is to show a bias in favour of internal applicants - so that you look for reasons to include them on the shortlist rather than exclude them. This may mean that you...

    Scenario 1 - the applicable Long Service Leave scheme covers casual employees as well as full time employees.

    Hi BDHR, I broadly agree with Bullswool's and Tiger's information. However, since your questions are specifically about the NES, I'd like to offer the following clarification:

    NO, the NES does...

    Hi Smaran,

    Generally, LSL entitlements in Australia are set out in State/Territory laws, so (for example) Queensland and New South Wales have similar but different LSL schemes. However, some...

    I'd suggest that you respond in writing to HR (with copy to your manager) indicating that you did not request a change in your working hours, and you do not agree to the change if it is an...

    Hi Michael,

    As the offer of further employment is with a related entity business, I presume that your 30 years of service, and your existing leave balances, will be fully recognised by your new...

    Hi Ahsan,

    When a position is redundant, the employer has an obligation to provide suitable alternative work (if possible) to the employee who was in that position. It sounds as though your employer has done...

    Hi Tekme,

    Broadly speaking, a redundancy payment is (somewhat inadequate) compensation for losing your job and source of income. Now that redeployment is possible, because an internal transfer...
