The Fair Work Ombudsman says that franchisors must educate and train their franchisees as one of the four essential steps to avoid legal and reputational risk when franchisees don’t follow workplace laws.

Training is essential to ensuring all franchisees/managers in your network understand their workplace obligations.

ER Strategies has developed Online Compliance Training modules designed to help franchisors engage franchisees in their workplace obligations in a flexible and easy to manage way, while helping franchisors avoid liability for franchisee non-compliance.

Introducing ER Strategies' Compliance Training Modules

Compliance training modules are available to both franchises and non-franchised businesses and are designed to assist business owners in meeting their Fair Work obligations. Unlike the majority of training content on the market, these modules are specifically designed for business owners and managers as opposed to employees, and provide detailed knowledge regarding employment law in a fun and easy to understand way. Access to the induction package of the training modules is included under a WorkShield membership and is also available for purchase for non-WorkShield clients.

For Franchisors

  • New laws hold franchisors responsible for franchisees contraventions of Australia’s complex workplace laws unless the franchisor can show it has taken reasonable steps to ensure that franchisees are complying with those laws. These steps include proactive education and training.
  • Online training including ER Strategies' new Australian workplace laws compliance modules series, is an efficient and cost-effective way to ensure franchisees, franchise business partners and other staff understand the complex employment laws.
  • The 'Induction' suite of ER Strategies' new Australian workplace laws compliance modules series is an inclusion under our innovative franchise-compliance service ‘WorkShield’.
  • As part of our existing service inclusion, we provide our franchise clients with simple, plain-English modules that teach your franchisees (and your franchise business managers and other staff), the basics of Australia's workplace laws. The modules are developed using SCORM compliant software rendering them playable on any SCORM-compliant Learning Management System (LMS), so you can keep evidence of your compliance program and your franchisees progress under it.

Further Benefits

  • Completion of courses can be tracked in your LMS which allows franchisors to monitor course completion for individual franchisees
  • Reduces need for face-to-face induction training for new franchisees, which can be costly and time-intensive.
