Industrial Relations Information

Information on industrial matters is regularly published in the ADA Inc. publications and the ADAVB's newsletter, Victorian Dentist. Phone advice is available on a variety of HR and workplace relations matters.

Operated by Wentworth Advantage, the service provides free for members:

  • A dedicated phone HR Hotline service for all ADA members to discuss issues and ask advice on a range of HR and IR matters
  • Your own Industrial Officers who are technically qualified as well as being fully aware of the issues that affect small business on a daily basis
  • A comprehensive manual written exclusively for ADA members, which provides practical and up-to-the-minute information and advice on a range of industrial issues specifically relevant to the dental profession
  • Access to online resources via ada.org.au
  • Regular articles in ADA Inc. and ADAVB newsletters and magazines
  • The option of appropriate referral to third-party service providers
  • Optional fee-for-service projects charges apply.

The Advisory Service offers advice, information and templates free for all members of the ADA.

Some of the ways the Advisory Service can help members are:

  1. Employment contracts
  2. Managing your workforce
  3. Setting up an employee handbook
  4. Workers' compensation and occupational health and safety
  5. A comprehensive HR and Work Health & Safety Manual and support services
  6. Termination of employment
  7. Leave entitlements
