More Effective Franchise Advisory Councils & Franchise System Governance

Callum Floyd

This workshop will explore, with the involvement of attendees, practices to improve Franchise Advisory Council and franchise system governance effectiveness.  The workshop will consider the structure and management of key Franchise Advisory Council processes, and the intersection between Franchise Advisory Councils and franchisor governance.

Keeping Your Mature Franchisee Fully Engaged

Greg Nathan

The majority of franchisees have been members of their franchise network for over years, which means they have substantial experience in the operations of their business. It also means that many of them will have more experience than members of the current franchisor team, and can bring a sceptical approach to the franchise relationship. In this interactive workshop, Greg Nathan will explore ways to creatively engage these mature franchisees and harness their knowledge and experience.

Workplace Compliance throughout the Franchise System

Andrew Shaw

This workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Minimum Employment law Obligations for Franchising
  • The Proposed Modern Slavery and Worker Exploitation legislation
  • How to Interact with MBIE and the Labour Inspectorate
  • Case Study: Super Liqour

Overview of the Privacy Act & Proposed Fair Pay Agreements Bill

Patrick Learmonth & Vaughan Granier

Patrick will provide an overview of the Privacy Act, specific issues that arise and how to respond to and how not to respond to the privacy complaint/query. Vaughan will give an overview on the fair pay agreements bill which is currently at select committee stage and what this will likely mean for employers should the bill be passed. This bill would set out a framework for collective bargaining for fair pay agreements across entire industries or occupations, rather than just between unions and particular employers.
