As specified under clause 1 of the PCD, La Porchetta and the FWO both informed their respective staff that they had entered into a Compliance Partnership and made a copy of the document available to them.
The FWO also issued a media release on 25 June 2014, publicly announcing the Compliance Partnership.
La Porchetta engaged an employment and safety law firm, HR Legal, to assist them in implementing their commitments under the PCD, including communication.
In April 2014, representatives of both La Porchetta and HR Legal held regional meetings with franchisees in Victoria to explain the reasons for entering into the PCD with the FWO and to provide them with a copy of the partnership document.
This information was also communicated in a webinar held in June 2015 for franchisees in other states and those who had been unable to attend the regional meetings in person. A webinar recording was posted to La Porchetta’s intranet for viewing by franchisees who missed the original webinar or meeting. A further webinar was also provided in June 2016 and posted to La Porchetta’s intranet.
