HR and employment law support 

  • Make sure that your HR paperwork represents your company values and meets all the legal requirements.
  • Employment law applies even before hiring an employee. When you begin recruiting, you are bound by laws on discrimination and data protection and more
  • Managing payroll requires up-to-date knowledge of the taxation system and employee entitlements. Managing your payroll has become complicated and time-consuming due to constant changes in the employment law, tax, super and record keeping/reporting requirements
  • Employee insurance: if you follow the advice our HR Support providers, court costs or penalties are covered should you receive a Fair Work claim.
  • Absence management is a big resourcing issue for some companies and may be caused by disability. Reasonable adjustments can be made but you may also need to explore legal termination options so you can recruit again. 
  • Poor staff performance or time keeping or serious breaches of your rules can cause problems and need timely and correct handling. Learn about disciplinary and grievance policies, including for misconduct for minor infringements or gross misconduct
  • Managing performance starts with a new hire who proves they are the right person for the job. A thorough induction, regular meetings and performance reviews during the probation period and beyond allow you to assess their effectiveness and address any problems early on.
  • Even the smallest office environment presents hazards and safeguarding risks that you as the employer must take responsibility for.
  • Employee assistance programs can reinforce your commitment to well-being
  • Redundancy consultation process and communicating with all employees, especially those on long-term sick or maternity leave is important if the business needs to reduce staff numbers to save costs
  • Disgruntled employees can affect your staff and culture and if you are unable to resolve issues informally to improve performance or correct misbehaviour, then dismissal may be the only option. Dismissal must follow a fair, consistent and legal process. Unfair dismissal claims have been known to be very costly

Being a course tutor involves understanding the training course content that you're tutoring, so it's very important that you have completed the course and understand the potential challenges that some students will have. 

Industry/job experience enables you to share stories and examples from the real world that relate to how the software is used so it's an important aspect of being a course tutor.

Time management skills are important for you to manage your workload and time but it's even more important when you need to manage the time that you spend with your students. 

Communications and troubleshooting are the skills that students will value the most as they navigate through their course materials, assignments and assessments.
