Employer Essentials: Contracts and Fair Work Act Compliance – Baulkham Hills

April 6, 2017 - 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM EST

By popular demand, Helen Winklemann is now also bringing her Employer Essentials series to the west!

After great feedback from Newcastle and nearly-sold-out sessions in St Leonards, the next Contracts and Fair Work Act Compliance Workshop will be held on April 6 2017 at Novotel Norwest.

This is the first in our 2017 series of Employer Essentials sessions for doctors working in private practice (or those considering a move to private practice).

The workshop will highlight risks; how to manage them; and help you read, understand, and comply with the Fair Work Act and Modern Awards.

See below for more information on who should attend and the outcomes for participants.

Employer Essentials: Contracts and Fair Work Act Compliance

Presented by AMA (NSW) Director of Professional Services, Helen Winklemann

Who should attend?

Any doctors who:

  • employ staff directly or are involved in staffing decisions for their practice (with or without a practice manager);
  • intend to hire new staff or renegotiate any new staff contracts/arrangements soon;
  • haven’t reviewed their employees’ contracts for a while (or who don’t have any in place); and/or
  • aren’t aware of their compliance obligations under the Fair Work Act and/or Modern Awards.

Participants will:

  • Learn about the key risks for practice principals under the Fair Work Act, including personal liability for civil penalties (eg, for sole trader doctors, company directors, key decision makers and anyone else ‘involved in’ breaches of the Act or Awards);
  • Identify key strategies for managing those risks, including identifying the key compliance obligations under the Fair Work Act, and assessing whether or how their own practice meets them;
  • Learn how to read, understand and comply with the two key Modern Awards that apply to employed practice staff; and
  • Review and discuss AMA (NSW)’s newly updated suite of contracts for private practice employees, including:
    • how they help protect your practice
    • how to access them
    • what they say (and why)
    • which one to choose (and when)
    • how to implement them in a manner appropriate for your practice
    • the importance of ongoing review of contracts.
