Managing Workplace Restructures

Level 8 Polding Centre 133 Liverpool Street Sydney, NSW 2000

Funding levels and business imperatives often mean organisations need to review their internal structure and make operational changes. Almost always, this has an impact on jobs, either by changing the duties and responsibilities of a position or number of positions, or removing a position/s entirely (that is, redundancy). The workshop will give participants a practical ‘how to’ guide to undertaking a workplace restructure, from developing a sound business case to consulting with affected staff and determining redundancy and other entitlements, understanding of the industrial and legal requirements around implementing a restructure and the potential legal, industrial and other risks of not properly managing a restructure, and practical tools for implementing a restructure.
