A strong industrial relations strategy supported by a tactical approach, planned communications and effective negotiations can achieve efficiencies for your business.
Maintaining a positive relationship with your workforce improves employee loyalty, productivity, engagement and retention. When operating in a highly unionised industry, this is particularly important as it can reduce the risk of industrial action or union disputes, which can be time consuming and expensive.
Implementing or renegotiating your Enterprise Agreement can reduce the complexity of operating your business, particularly if you have Award covered employees. It can also result in efficiencies for your business that could not be achieved otherwise.
HR Legal’s approach to industrial relations and enterprise bargaining is not prescriptive or formula driven. Rather the advice and support we provide is tailored to your business needs.

- Enterprise Bargaining and Negotiations;
- Communications strategy, development and execution;
