A Melbourne employer has been ordered to pay nearly $40k in compensation following a botched unfair dismissal hearing at the hands of its HR manager.

    Too often HR generalists are tasked with responding to IR issues like this and they are not equipped. The impact on Brand and reputation is significant. Lesson - if you don't know, don't claim to know, and outsource to experts.

    I agree with Stuart - HR generalists must not be afraid to ask for assistance when faced with a situation outside of their remit. The hiring of an expert would have had less financial impact and serve as a learning tool for the HR person.
