COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Support for the workplace

We encourage employees and employers to work together to find appropriate solutions that suit the needs of individual workplaces and staff.


 

Workplace and Industrial Relations

For information and assistance on any aspect of your employment obligations, members an access the Victorian Chamber Workplace Relations Advice Line on 03 8662 5222.

Members also have access to a suite of templates, policies and procedures, including resources on how to communicate mandatory vaccinations in the workplace.

We have also set up a dedicated Industrial Relations Support service for non-members to receive support for industrial relations matters. The service will include over-the-phone advice, webinars, fact sheets, newsletters, and other resources.

Mental health and wellbeing

Employers have a duty of care to do what they can, within reason, to protect staff from COVID-19. These include communicating the Department of Health’s hygiene and self-isolation guidelines to staff and knowing which of your staff has a higher risk of serious illness from contracting the virus.

These difficult times will also have an effect on the mental health of you and your staff, and there are resources to help. The Victorian Chamber’s expert Health Safety and Wellbeing team has put together some resources to help support yourself and staff through this time. 

 

Businesses can now call a Business Victoria hotline on 13 22 15 for the latest information on the COVID-19 response, how this affects businesses, how to keep their workplace safe and advice on how to plan for emerging situations and anticipate likely developments. Businesses can call the Business Victoria Hotline for the latest information on QR code requirements.
