Workplace Policies: Tailored Solutions with IR Advocates

In today’s business environment, establishing sound workplace policies is indispensable. At IR Advocates, we understand the multifaceted nature of industrial relations and human resources, providing specialized support in crafting and reviewing workplace policies. We focus on three fundamental categories:

  1. Statutory Policies
    These policies ensure compliance with legal mandates, safeguarding the integrity of the workplace and protecting the rights of both employees and employers. Examples of these policies include:
    • Bullying and Harassment: Implementing clear guidelines that promote a respectful working environment and adhere to Australian legal standards.
    • Equal Opportunity and Discrimination: Establishing procedures that uphold the principles of fairness and inclusivity.

  2. During Employment Policies
    These policies govern day-to-day working relations and organisational culture, forming the basis for harmonious employer-employee relationships. Examples of these policies include:
    • Annual and Personal Leave: Outlining procedures for leave entitlements, ensuring fairness and compliance.
    • Absenteeism: Creating protocols for managing and addressing unauthorized absences.
    • Smoking and Alcohol: Developing policies that maintain a safe and healthy workplace.
    • Grievance Procedures: Formulating structured and impartial processes for resolving internal conflicts and complaints.
    • CCTV Surveillance: Defining the use of surveillance within the workplace to prevent misconduct and ensure security, while respecting privacy laws.

  3. End of Employment Policies
    These policies detail the terms and conditions related to the termination of employment, ensuring that all actions are carried out legally and ethically. Examples of these policies include:
    • Termination Procedures: Providing comprehensive guidelines for lawful termination processes, including notice periods and severance arrangements.
    • Misconduct and Performance Management: Establishing frameworks for managing employee conduct and performance issues, in alignment with legal requirements.0
