Navigating the maze of Workplace Relations for workplace leaders


The Australian Workplace Relations landscape is a complicated network of intertwined legislation, case law, contracts, awards and agreements. Navigating this maze can be complicated enough for HR and ER professionals, never mind for supervisors who are often the front line for dealing with issues as they arise.

This course is designed to provide workplace leaders with a baseline of knowledge and skills to help make better informed decisions and manage risk. Participants will leave the session with an understanding of why Workplace Relations is such a critical business pillar and the skills to be able to effectively handle the common situations they are likely to be presented with.

AMMA will incorporate key aspects of your organisation’s policies and procedures in guiding participants through areas such as performance management, discipline, termination of employment, dispute resolution, right of entry, and workplace conduct, to ensure participants leave with a sound understanding of how to deal with issues as they arise in accordance with applicable regulatory requirements and your business practice.


On completion of this course participants will understand:

  • How the Workplace Relations system in Australia works and an employer’s obligations
  • Minimum terms and conditions of employment
  • Key elements of enterprise bargaining
  • How to deal with industrial action and other workplace disputes
  • How to respond to union right of entry
  • What constitutes discrimination and general protections
  • How to lawfully bring employment to an end


AMMA consultants hold unrivalled knowledge, experience and expertise in Employment & Industrial Relations in the Australian Resources and Energy sector. Our consultants have extensive knowledge of the legislative framework and case law relating to employment in Australia and this is used as a foundation for this course.

AMMA’s materials are highly practical and engaging in nature and regularly refer participants to examples relevant to your sites. Practical case studies and role plays will be referred to throughout the course to ensure participants have an opportunity to digest and comprehend the course content.


Face to face training is recommended to maximise value and learning outcomes for the participants and your organisation.

AMMA services all areas of Australia including regular tours of regional and remote Australia and would be pleased to discuss aligning our tour schedule to suit your training agenda and minimise costs.
