MEA Members To Benefit From Free Workplace Advice

August 1, 2013 MICE No Comments Email Email

Members of the Meetings & Events Australia can now benefit from a free telephone advisory service specialising in workplace relations.

In a move which adds further value to the membership, MEA has entered into an arrangement with Employsure Pty Ltd to offer employment and human resources advice to financial members.

The workplace relations specialist provides a telephone advice service which enables members to make confident and informed decisions in respect to managing staff.

“Such advice would help minimise the risk of disputes and disruption to the business,” said MEA



chief executive officer Linda Gaunt.

“This advice service is included in the membership package for company members and is available 24 hours day, 365 days a year,” she said.

“No matter how routine or complex the situation, there is now an avenue for members to explore to obtain advice on any employment and human resources related matters.

“Furthermore, there is also no limit to the number of times a member can use this service.”

To use this service, members simply:

  • Phone 1300 651 415
  • Quote the unique client account no. MEA9232. This should be quoted on all occasions when using the Employsure 24-hr Advice Service.
  • Be required to quote your name and business name before advice is given.

To ensure the service is provided to only current financial MEA members, the business name will be checked to see if the person calling is authorised to use the service on behalf of the company.

“If the business name or person does not appear to be authorised, they will be referred to MEA to confirm the membership status,” said Linda.

“It is important that the person authorised to use the service on behalf of the company – including HR managers – are noted on the MEA database,” she said.

The MEA advises it is essential for members to respond to advising of the name of the person who would be using the service on behalf of the company and forward this email to them.

To ensure there are no delays in using the service, it is important this information is kept up to date at all times.

Members will also be able to attend Employsure seminars in the various locations. These seminars touch on topical issues relating to Employment Law and Human Resources to help members better understand the workplace and how to deal with the responsibilities of an employer.

Significantly, these seminars are free of charge for MEA members who will be advised when and where they take place.

MEA is hopeful members will make full use of this Employment Law / HR Advice Service.

“This service is there to assist you as an employer to make confident and informed decisions in respect of your staff, ensuring that you minimise the risk of disputes and subsequent disruption to your business,” said Linda.
