Policy Training for Employees in the workplace

by Andrew Lind on 21 June, 16

In the employment sphere, workplace policies are being newly introduced or updated and changed.  It is important that when these changes taken place, staff are regularly kept informed or notified of the changes or introduction of such policies.  Policy training is essential to guiding your workforce on accepted conduct and behaviour.

A recent case in the Fair Work Commission highlighted the importance of keeping staff informed. In the matter of Con Perry v ComfortDelGro Cabcharge Pty Ltd T/A Hillsbus Co Pty Ltd, it was discussed that employee’s should be made aware of new requirements so that they can incorporate them in to their work.  The other highlight was that if there was a failure to notify employees, an employee could use this as a defense in non-compliance.  You can read more on the need to conduct policy training for employees and contact us for assistance.
