The Fallout Following Performance Mismanagement: Workers’ Compensation and Employment Law Perspectives

The Fallout Following Performance Mismanagement:  Workers’ Compensation and Employment Law Perspectives

The Industrial Relations Society invites members and guests to attend an evening seminar hosted by Jackson McDonald. This seminar is designed specifically to equip HR practitioners and managers with the skills and knowledge to address issues that commonly arise in performance management processes. The consequences of poor performance mismanagement are extensive.  Both our Insurance and Employment Law practices are seeing an alarming increase in stress, bullying and unfair dismissal claims linked to poorly implemented management processes and outright mismanagement of employee performance issues.

Speakers

Jackson McDonald’s Kate Walawski and Alex Lustig will explore the fallout following mismanagement of the performance management process. This seminar will prepare you with the skills and knowledge to deal with the issues that may arise, such as responding to a workers’ compensation claim for psychological damage or an application to the Fair Work Commission for a ‘stop bullying order’.
