Course description

Do you know how to roster your employees in compliance with the General Retail Industry Award (GRIA) and save money for your business?

In this course, our workplace relations advisors will take you through the rostering provisions of the GRIA to help save you time and money and ensure compliance with the GRIA.

As underpayments in the retail industry continue to dominate news headlines, it has never before been so important to take proactive steps to ensure award compliance. In this challenging time where wage compliance is not just ‘a nice thing to have’ but an essential aspect of any business, understanding the complex rostering rules in the General Retail Industry Award is essential for retail executives and retail management teams.

To assist our clients in eliminating the headache that comes with preparing rosters, NRA Legal has developed a 2-hour online workshop that will unpack the rostering principles and highlight the intricacies of the Retail Award.

This live and interactive workshop will deliver an overview of compliant rostering practices that will minimise your exposure to overtime penalties and underpayment claims. In particular, we will focus on:

  • An introduction to common rostering pitfalls;
  • How different employment types impact your rostering practices;
  • Understanding ordinary hours of work, breaks, penalties and loadings;
  • Notifying employees of shifts and changes to the roster;
  • The inter-relationship between the complex rostering rules in the Retail Award; and
  • Tools and resources for achieving compliance.
