Business owners deal with a range of complex issues everyday – issues well beyond simply successfully marketing and selling their product or service.
While it may seem to business owners they have to be completely across a range of complicated and ever-changing fields, there are experts out there to call on for assistance when needed.
Having a team of trusted advisors in areas such as accounting, financial planning and business banking can reduce stress and risk.
Workplace relations can be one of the most important things for a business to get right, yet understanding the rules and keeping up with the constant modifications to employment law could be a full-time job.
As a member of Canberra Business Chamber, you have access to a specialist Workplace Relations team that provides business specific services related to industrial relations, human resources, occupational health and safety, modern Awards, individual flexible workplace agreements and enterprise bargaining agreements.
For nearly 10 years, Greg Schmidt has been helping members navigate the minefield that is workplace relations. Greg has a comprehensive background in human relations and employment law.
This month he was joined on the Workplace Relations team by Kelly Adamcewicz. Kelly has joined the Chamber after four years with the Master Builders Association, during which she provided industrial relations assistance to the construction industry. With a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice, a Bachelor of Laws (Hons) and a Bachelor of Advertising and Marketing Communications Kelly is highly qualified and appropriately experienced to provide our members with a broad range of workplace relations advice. She is looking forward to meeting members and sharing her significant knowledge and expertise across a broader range of industry sectors.
Through the Workplace Relations Hotline, Kelly and Greg are available to provide you with prompt, accurate and free advice on Award interpretation, employment conditions and wages. Under an excellent value fee-for-service model, they can also provide more in-depth support, such as: providing representation at the Fair Work Commission, detailed advice on managing staff situations, enterprise bargaining, contract review, and development of staff policies.
The Workplace Relations team have a vast understanding of all aspects of employment law and are committed to keeping their knowledge up to date. In addition, they will keep you informed of major changes specific to your business or sector through the Chamber newsletter or direct mail-outs.
