Compliance services

Employment law becomes more complex all the time. Our IR experts’ partner with our clients to ensure clients comply with all statutory and award obligations, including representing clients with the Fair Work Ombudsman or in the Fair Work Commission (or other employment tribunals) if required.   

HR foundations

Forvis Mazars as an employer understands the importance of making sure that the foundations of a HR function are sound. Without a sound framework employee management becomes more challenging. With this in mind, our consultants many of whom have run their own businesses, work with clients to ensure they have the fundamentals in place, such as policies and procedures, employment contracts, contractor agreements, job descriptions, performance plans, goal setting and review processes.

Protecting your most valuable asset

Our employees are our most valuable asset in driving business success. It is therefore necessary to ensure that we keep employees engaged and supported in their journey as an employee. Our services include leadership development, team building, market linked remuneration reviews, recognition programs, executive coaching, Employee Assistance Programs, cultural reviews and employee engagement.

People management

Our services are not only advisory, we can also provide advocacy before industrial tribunals when necessary. For example, workplace disputes, Stop Bullying claims, unfair dismissal claims, workers compensation claims, discrimination claims, underpayment of wages actions.
