Ines brings business savvy and an international perspective to her work. With nine years previous experience as an HR Business Partner in manufacturing and retail environments in Australia and the UK, she understands the particular nuances and pressures HR departments face, and this is reflected in the advice she gives clients. Ines is an accomplished workplace investigator and has completed both internal and external investigations within a myriad of HR/OH&S areas including bullying and harassment, cultural team reviews and investigations into serious misconduct (including OH&S incidents).
Ines has Industrial Ergonomics and OHS experience and is a Mental Health First Aider, as well as a Certified Return to Work Co-Ordinator. All of this means she brings a practical and human approach to her work on the full range of contentious and non-contentious employment and WHS work.
Clients appreciate the practical perspective Ines’ experience brings. Damien Bowden, Head of People, Culture, Marketing & Communications recently commented, “I greatly appreciate the sharpness of the advice and relevance to the actual client scenario. It is a real benefit in not having to wade through unnecessary legal theory.”
Ines’ work focuses on:
- contract preparation and enforcement
- workplace policies and procedures
- workplace investigations
- termination of employment/unfair dismissal
- restructuring and redundancy
- modern award compliance and statutory employment obligations
- anti-discrimination/equal opportunities
