Counselling & Warnings
Some members may find themselves in a situation where their rights are not being upheld. They may be counselled in a manner which is harsh or unjust.
I advise all SDA members to read the InfoPage because knowing the correct procedure on counselling and warnings will ensure you are treated fairly.
- Michael Donovan, State Secretary
The SDA accepts that an employer may legitimately interview and counsel an employee to assist them in their work.
Counselling is a positive action designed to raise an individuals' performance and ensure that they understand the relevant policies and procedures.
But a counselling session is a two-way discussion - not an interrogation for alleged breaches of policies or procedures.
