If you’re a Chamber member, just phone or email the advice line, and our employment law and HR experts will give you tailored assistance and work with you to understand your business and provide easy and practical solutions.

For those businesses that would like additional support, we offer an Employer Assist Premium Service which includes, among other tailored services, unlimited access to our advisors through our Employer Advice Line.

Now, more than ever, people are a valuable asset for any business. You need straightforward, effective advice to help you effectively build, manage and get the best out of your team.

You need support and information quickly; from an advisor you trust.

The Chamber has been supporting employers for almost ninety years, and we’re a member owned, not for profit organisation.

What is the Employer Advice line?

The Employer Advice Line provides members with access to employment law experts who will provide you with informed and tailored advice via phone or email.

What kind of advice can the Employer Advice Line provide?

Our team can assist you with any employment query you may have; understanding Awards, pay and conditions, developing best practice policies and procedures to get the most out of your team, and supporting you to effectively resolve difficult workplace issues like ending employment.

What about more complex matters?

As some complex issues are beyond the scope of the advice line, we offer consultancy services at highly competitive, member-only pricing.

Our team can help with anything from a full review of your workplace policies and procedures, training for your managers, to developing your own workplace agreements.

We’re very happy to discuss your needs and provide an obligation free proposal.
