About ComplianceNet Programs

  • Price Fixing
  • Group Boycotts
  • AntiCompetitive Agreements
  • Misuse of Market Power
  • Exclusive Dealing
  • Third Line Forcing
  • Resale Price Maintenance
  • Misleading or Deceptive Conduct

  • Codes of Conduct
  • Dealing with the ACCC
  • Document Control

Privacy

The privacy laws protect individuals from unwanted intrusion into their private lives and guarantee fair dealing with their personal information. Failing to handle and control personal information properly is not only a breach Australia’s privacy laws but also of customer trust.

It is essential that all employees dealing with personal information understand there are severe penalties for breaching privacy laws especially those relating to telecommunications and credit reporting, which in some cases can be imposed on both organisation and employee.

Program topics include keeping and using employee records, the transfer of personal information to related companies and use of customer information within a company. The program has optional modules covering health records, consumer credit information and telecommunications.

Anti-Discrimination (EEO)

Australian law prohibits discrimination based on attributes such as race, gender, age, disability and more.

This training program explains how these laws impact on all employees, and tells them what they have to do, or avoid doing, at work. The program sets out what the laws say in a straightforward way, and with lots of examples to demonstrate how they apply in practice.

Work, Health & Safety

A safe workplace can’t just be taken for granted. This is something that takes a lot of hard work and commitment. This program has been designed to help all people at the workplace including employees, employers, contractors and visitors understand the importance of acting in a responsible way.

NetControl (Internet & email usage)

Use of the Internet and email can present problems for any business. Employees need to know how to avoid legal issues such as defamation, breaches of privacy and accessing illegal content.

Smart Contracting

Contracts are the fundamental basis of most business relationships. Every day, in every organisation, contracts are made by email, fax, letter and conversation – and not only by the legal department.

Managing the contracting process is an essential business precaution. If all the implications (and limitations) of a contract are understood by everyone involved business is more efficient, less complicated and less risky!
