Stop Being Scared Of Industrial Relations

Find out how to no longer be at the whim of the unions, IR Club, or lawyers. IR 101 helps business owners and managers manage their industrial relations challenges WITHOUT needing lawyers. IR 101 is delivered like this:

9 Weeks of Online Training

You will get access to 9 weeks of online training to give you the confidence and knowledge to handle 95% of industrial relations matters.

Week 1:

The Fair Work Act This is where everything starts. Without being able to understand the Fair Work Act, nothing else makes sense. We will cover the National Employment Standards (N.E.S.), who does what (FWO, FWC, etc), and only the parts you need to know and understand for your business.

Week 2:

Employee Engagement This is one of the best things that you can do to reduce potential industrial relations challenges. Without an engaged workforce, your chances of industrial relations difficulties increase.

Week 3:

Unfair Dismissal Don’t listen to doom and gloom. Unfair dismissal isn’t something businesses should be scared of. You will find out how to respond to an application, reduce the risk of them, and how to keep the application out of the media. You will also get a deed of release template.

Week 4:

Workplace Investigations This week we delve into workplace investigations. When you should do one, why you may need to, who should, what you should expect.

Week 5:

Terminations One unfortunate reality of employing staff is that there may come a time where the employment relationship ends. This week is dedicated to making sure that, if you have to do it, that it is done right, and to keep you out of the Fair Work Commission.

Week 6:

Modern Awards/Enterprise Agreements This week is all about modern awards and enterprise agreements. You’ll discover the pros and cons of each, and which one will be best for your business. You will get an enterprise agreement template, and how to get it approved by the Fair Work Commission.

Week 7:

Union Relationships Managing a relationship with unions and their members isn’t something that should be taken lightly or ignored.

Week 8:

General Protections Your employees and contractors are protected by the Fair Work Act against being treated adversely due to exercising a workplace right. This week we go into this, and how to make sure that your business remains free of adverse action complaints.

Week 9:

Bullying/Harassment This week we cover workplace bullying and harassment. How to minimise the chance of it happening and what to do if it does.


Enterprise Associations A little utilised section of the Fair Work Act relates to Enterprise Associations. Enterprise associations give the ‘power’ of collectivism and representation back to the employees. This week we delve into them, and how they can benefit your business and your employees.

At The FWC While we do hope that you don’t end up at the Fair Work Commission, there may be a time where you do. This week we prepare you for it.

12 Months Of Weekly Q & A Support

To make sure that you understand and are confident within your ability to manage industrial relations challenges, we will support you along the way.

Every week we will meet online for a group session to answer any questions you may have.

In addition to the group session, you will also get access to an online mastermind group, where you can get support from others who have gone through the same journey as you.

3 Day IR Conference

At this three day conference you will build on the skills and knowledge that you have developed during the program.
