Workplace Relations

LGNSW's Workplace Relations team provides member councils with advice and representation on a range of matters, including award negotiation and compliance, industrial disputes, enterprise agreements, performance management, employment termination, managing ill or injured workers, workplace change, and more.

We offer representation before the Industrial Relations Commission of NSW (IRC), Administrative Decisions Tribunal (ADT) and the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) on behalf of members. Our industrial relations advice and representation is available to all members free of charge, providing critical support and substantial cost savings in times of need.
