Episode 58: Enterprise Agreements and Unfair Dismissal Stats

Episode 58: Enterprise Agreements and Unfair Dismissal Stats

In this episode of the IR Simplified Podcast, I talk about the following items.

Enterprise agreements, and that they haven’t failed businesses. Businesses have failed them.

I also talk about two noticeable clauses from recently approved enterprise agreements.

Link to the “no work past knockoff on Friday” clause.

Link to the “authorised union representative” clause.

In the second part of this episode I talk the number of unfair dismissal applications that businesses face.

The numbers are too high, though not for the reasons that others are talking about.
