Being totally honest here, complying with Australia’s Fair Work Act and other legislation is complex and tricky.
If you don’t know what you are doing, or where to start.
Yet people do these tasks every single day without complaining that things need to change.
Taking inspiration from all those ‘experts’ who tell you that the Fair Work Act is confusing, complex, and a disaster, I decided to go against the flow, and founded IR Simplified.
With the mission being, To Simplify Industrial Relations.
Let’s face it, industrial relations is one of the least ‘sexy’ parts of running a business. (Despite actually loving it, I would rank it lower than accounting in terms of ‘sexiness’. Mind you, I am doing what I can to change that too).
That it until something goes wrong.
Think Domino’s, 7-Eleven, and Caltex to name a few.
Despite those high profile ‘fails’, it is easy for the Australian business owner to stay on the right side of the Fair Work Act, and out of the papers.
I should also point out that nothing in this site could or should be considered legal advice, I am not a lawyer.
Actually, to tell you the truth, I don’t have a HR or Business degree either.
What I do have is years of experience in talking to people, working for horrible bosses, and a passion for making everything a win-win result.
And that is what industrial relations should really be about.
