The most valuable asset of any company is its people. Understanding employment matters and keeping up to date with the ever-changing employment landscape is therefore essential for the successful operation of any business.

In an economic environment that requires businesses to respond quickly to market changes/challenges, re-structure and even the removal of employees, centres face an increasing risk of workplace disputes, industrial action and employee-driven litigation.


More than ever before, Owners, Directors and Managers need to make well-informed decisions regarding these employee and employment related issues. They need access to expert advice that will minimise the potential risk of costly litigation and disruption to their business, and ensuring their actions are commercially sound and compliant.


Contacting ChildCare HRS with a simple question early in the peace can prevent an issue from escalating and turning into a legal dispute or complicated problem later on. Risk management is the key. At ChildCare HRS we offer a unique employment and business consultancy advisory service to all our clients. This service ensures our clients have easy access to an experienced consultant who is readily available to answer questions and discuss issues as required.


ChildCare HRS can provide you with

  • Fast and accurate advice if, and when, you need it.

  • A cost-effective way to minimise risk.

  • Outcome-focussed problem solving.

  • Objective and commercially-focused solutions to employee / employment issues as they arise.

  • Peace of mind in potentially difficult HR situations.

  • Specific advice from experts who understand your business, the child care industry and management approach.


It is important to be aware however that we are not lawyers and are not a legal practice, thus your own third party independent legal advice should be sought as required.


With offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth, we have the expertise and resources to work with large multinationals, emerging companies, SMEs, family run centres, private investors, local government and community run non for profit committees for all their human resources, industrial relations of employment requirements within the child care industry.


Our goal is to help our clients succeed by providing commercially-astute advice to ensure your workplace is compliant and productive. In recent years the system of regulation of industrial relations in Australia has undergone dramatic change. With the arrival and subsequent departure of WorkChoices and the enactment of its replacement, the introduction of modern awards under the Fair Work Act which are still constantly evolving and changing, employers have had more to deal with than ever before.


Frequently employment issues are linked with broader management and business concerns and the quality of service to our clients is enhanced by our ability to provide employment advice as part of an overall centre strategy. We firmly believe that prevention is better than cure and we aim to help you avoid disputes whenever possible. The success of this philosophy has resulted in us helping many centres to restructure their operations while maintaining the goodwill of their employees and avoiding difficulties with unions.


For many consulting firms, the number one priority is to get new clients. For us, it’s to do excellent work for the ones we’ve got. How can we be of assistance to you today ?
