Under clause 8 of the PCD, La Porchetta provided new franchisees induction training on their obligations under Australian workplace laws. Training was conducted by HR Legal on behalf of La Porchetta and focused on employer obligations under the award.
At the induction training, new franchisees were provided with an employment pack containing information on employer obligations, fact sheets, the latest annual update, a copy of the PCD and where to obtain further information; as required by clause 10 of the PCD. The content of the employment packs was also uploaded to the La Porchetta intranet for access by franchisees at any time.
Throughout the partnership, La Porchetta head office provided existing and new franchisees with annual updates in June each year about any increases to the minimum rates of pay via La Porchetta’s intranet.
La Porchetta also ensured all franchisees received regular updates on employment-related matters about ensuring compliance with the FW Act.
