Client Success Stories

 

See how businesses similar to yours are growing and achieving success with the help of BetterHR. 

Successfully defending our Clients from Unfair Dismissal Case.

BetterHR helped retail and importing business win unfair dismissal case.

 

Better HR’s HR Consulting team helped a client win an unfair dismissal case.

Better HR successfully represented an importing and retail business. Once again the consulting team applied their strong negotiating and advocacy experience to the task at the Fair Work Commision resulting in a mutual settlement, but with no monetary payment being made to the ex-employee.

The negotiated outcome left the business confident that they had treated the employee fairly and lawfully in compliance with the Fair Work Act and related Award. The settlement also barred any further claims in relation to this employee’s employment and ensured that the business would not be penalised.

BetterHR helped a manufacturing business win an unfair dismissal case.

 

Better HR represented a client in an unfair dismissal claim. The employee claimed his termination was not for reasons of genuine redundancy.

In the absence of supportive representation, businesses can feel pressured to settle during conciliation. Worse, if the matter had gone to hearing and the jurisdictional argument was not pressed firmly, exposure to reinstatement or possibly six months pay is always a possible risk.

Better HR successfully argued that the claim was without merit and was discontinued with no payment of monies to the employee.

Better HR helped a tax accounting firm successfully defend an unfair dismissal matter.

 

Better HR acted for a tax accounting firm on an unfair dismissal matter, where the employee was alleged to have committed fraudulent behaviour, which is tantamount to serious misconduct. The employer also identified numerous instances of underperformance. The employee in question denied all allegations.

With Better HR’s help, the matter was settled for a fraction of the price the matter would have cost if it proceeded to an arbitration hearing before the Fair Work Commission. The company is now able to get on with business, without an employee who they regarded as toxic.

BetterHR helped a wholesale home-wares business to successfully defend an unfair dismissal claim.

 

Better HR was contacted by a wholesale home-wares business. Who had terminated an employee for performance and conduct related reasons. The ex-employee sought to take the employer to the Fair Work Commission for a speculative unfair dismissal claim.

Better HR helped the client to successfully defend the claim. By reviewing the relevant contract of employment, company records and the unfair dismissal application, Better HR discovered jurisdictional impediments that would not allow the employee to take the claim further to a hearing.

Successfully defending our Clients from Unfair Dismissal Case.

BetterHR helped a small family business in the agriculture industry to successfully defend a general protections claim.

 

Better HR was contacted by a growing utility company. The company had a senior manager resign with an intention to work for a direct competitor. The company was concerned about losing intellectual property, confidential information and clients.

Better HR planned and advised on appropriate strategies for protecting the company’s interests. This included reminding the departing employee of their obligations under contract and the likely injunctions and damages claims that would be made against them and their new employer if those post-employment restraints were breached. The company avoided any loss of intellectual property, confidential information and clients.

    BetterHR helped a stationery provider successfully defend a general protections claim.

     

    Better HR recently acted for a stationery provider in a general protections claim. The former employee alleged that the employer breached numerous terms of the applicable Modern Award, resulting in large underpayments. There were also allegations that the employer misrepresented the earning capacity when advertising the role, and that the employer engaged in sham contracting.

    Better HR negotiated a settlement amount that was sixteen times lower than the maximum penalties that could have been Awarded if the matter proceeded. By settling the matter, the business also avoided the potential negative publicity that could come with legal proceedings, and a judgment that would mean other “contractors” at the company could make similar claims.

    BetterHR helped a medical centre to successfully defend an ex-employee claim.

     

    Better HR was contacted by a medical centre. Who had received a general protections claim from an ex-employee. Alledging contraventions involving dismissal.

    Better HR helped the client fight the claim and win an early victory. Saving the client a lot of time and money.

    BetterHR helped a telecommunications company defend a bullying claim.

     

    Better HR was contacted by a business over an employee who had made a bullying claim in the Fair Work Commission against the employer and various employees within the business.

    Better HR planned and advised on appropriate strategies for protecting the company’s interests including responding to the claim, as well as to understand the legal jurisdiction of the Commission and the potential risks in relation to such claims. There was no admission of liability by the company and none was established in the ensuing mediation. The company agreed to have their workplace policies and processes reviewed and updated by Better HR to ensure ongoing compliance. The matter has been closed by the Commission with no compensation awarded to the employee.
