Do you need Employment Relations Advice?


ADOHTA is proud to announce that as of the 2019-2020 membership year, ADOHTA will be providing independent Industrial Relations advice to all ADOHTA financial members.
 
Employment arrangements within the oral health sector are more diverse than ever before. This diversity is to be celebrated and ADOHTA believes it reflects a positive workforce trend toward Dental and Oral Health Therapists’ being the chosen oral health care provider in a variety of settings.
 
However, challenges remain in ensuring all Dental and Oral Health Therapists’ are employed and/ or contracted in accordance with Fair Work Australia guidelines. ADOHTA recognises the need to offer member support when uncertainties arise.
 

 

ADOHTA Inc. has contracted the services of a solicitor with expertise in workplace arrangements for dental practitioners, including dental therapists, oral health therapists, and dental hygienists in both private practice and the public sector.

ADOHTA Inc. will provide a FREE MEMBER SERVICE access to a solicitor for an initial 15-minute phone consultation or half-A4 page email advice. Any further advice would require a fee by direct negotiation between the member and solicitor for more complex matters.
