90 Day Trial Error and Dismissal for medical incapacity…

Posted on 20 September, 2016 at 18:42


Employee justifiably dismissed for medical incapacity…

An employee has been dismissed 22 months after suffering a serious spinal and pelvic injury while at work. The employee returned to work after a year, under a graduated return to work programme organised by ACC. The employee completed light duties and had built up to working 16 hour weeks when his occupational medical specialist told him that he would not be able to return to work in his pre-injury role.

The employer then terminated the employee’s position because of medical incapacity.

The Employment Relations Authority rejected the employee’s personal grievance claim for unjustified dismissal.

The ERA held that the employer had acted as a fair and reasonable employer could in all of the circumstances by dismissing the employee when he could no longer perform the work he was employed to do.

However,the ERA found that the employer had unjustifiably disadvantaged the employee by not having provided him with *outplacement assistance such as assistance with CV writing and interview skills*. The employee had been offered a morning tea and a written reference, but no other support was provided to him.

The ERA reasoned that the employee was entitled to outplacement assistance as he was dismissed as a result of his incapacity rather than for any deliberate or careless fault, such as misconduct. The ERA noted that his dismissal was akin to a dismissal on the grounds of redundancy, and thus *the employer was obligated to treat the employee fairly when carrying out the dismissal.* The ERA noted that fair treatment can include providing the employee with counselling, career and financial advice, retraining, and related financial support.

The ERA awarded the employee $2,000 in compensation for the loss of benefit of receiving outplacement assistance, and $1,000 in compensation for injury to feelings.

*NOTE FROM ONE21 RECRUITMENT: This is where One21's Outplacement Support 'Job Steps' could have been utilised to assist the employee with Career Counselling, CV Writing, Interview Coaching and transitioning into a new job. ONE21 JOB STEPS

90-day trial provisions must have a start date says ERA!

In a recent case, four employees resigned from their job and have since applied to the Employment Relations Authority to uphold their personal grievance claims for unjustified dismissal.

At the time of their resignation, the employees were on a 90-day trial period.
The employees argued before the Employment Relations Authority that the 90-day trial provision in their employment agreements was nullified as the clauses did not state when the trial periods would begin.

The ERA noted that in order for a 90-day trial period to be legally valid, the provision must contain a start day.

The ERA held that the individual employment agreements did not reasonably imply that the 90-day trial started on the first day of the employees’ employment.
The ERA noted a number of circumstances where parties may agree that the 90-day trial period should start after the first day of employment, for example if some offsite training is to take place before an employee begins work, if there is a temporary overseas placement, or if there is a lengthy induction period.

This case is a good reminder for all employers to ensure that their 90-day trial provisions contain a start date and comply with employment law.

Are you paying TOO MUCH for Recruitment?

Posted on 21 July, 2015 at 20:56
Are you paying TOO MUCH for Recruitment?

A little bit more shameless self promotion is needed today, as I just talked to a local agency and was absolutely flabbergasted by their steep - in fact ridiculously out-of-this-world high fees for recruiting. 

They proposed that if my clients paid them 22% for a candidate (based on first years annual salary) that they would be getting a great deal. When I suggested that price was a bit extreme the consultant said it was because they do 'elite' head hunting around New Zealand. 

Hmmm well so do I - but certainly not at that price!

I do sometimes collaborate with specialist recruitment agencies around NZ when required for technical, hard to fill, or skills shortage roles, although 90% of the time I source these candidates directly. However a fee of 15% is the most I have ever had to contend with from another agency and this gets negotiated down for my clients. I think 22-30% is just over-the-top and surely can't be justified!

Yes I agree we should be paid what we are worth and when we have put many years into becoming a professional recruiter then it is hard to put a price on skills and knowledge. Nobody really knows how much work goes on behind the scenes when recruiting, the tools, the time, the systems and processes, the resources, the technical knowledge and overall cost of getting us to the point where we provide such great results - all our clients usually see are the great candidates we seem to magic out of nowhere. 

So yes, we are worth being paid accordingly. 

But for an agency to offer me a candidate they just happen to have on their books at an initial charge of 22% when they are doing absolutely none of the work in this recruiting process and the ad has only been up for less than 24 hours - well that's a bit cheeky really. Whats worse is they have probably convinced that candidate to be 'exclusive' to their agency only and not apply for jobs directly, so they are in effect doing the candidate out of a potential role. I wonder whether that job seeker realises they have a price of around $22,000+ hanging over their head? Are they getting any interviews or job offers I wonder? 

On the other hand One21 work very differently - we are contractors hired to do the full recruitment process at a cost effective fixed fee and we don't charge ridiculously high commissions - or in fact any commissions at all.

One21 are Recruitment Process Outsourcers for businesses in Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty, providing cost effective, timely, individualised, results driven recruiting solutions, often at a third of the cost or much less than traditional recruitment agencies, yet providing the highest level of service and often more value and better long term sustainable results. As we are engaged to manage the complete recruiting process for our clients as a contractor, you can rest assured we don't charge hefty commissions or make quick fixes just to get 'bums on seats'. 

We utilise creative marketing, specialist knowledge, a comprehensive database and our wide web of connections, aiming to leave no stone unturned when it comes to sourcing your next star employee, whether you need Permanent staff, a short term Temp or a specialist Contractor. 

We know where and when to advertise, can take care of any subtle 'shoulder tapping' or more direct 'head hunting' if you know who you want, and we always work with discretion, honesty and integrity, treating your candidates with fairness and respect, upholding your company's good name and aligning with your marketing, branding and cultural values.

So why wouldn't you hire a professional to take care of your next recruiting process, when you know it will save you on time, resources and manpower, that can be better utilised working on your own business? 

If it's about cost then think about the cost of doing a DIY job and getting it wrong! You will be surprised at how cost effective it is to engage a recruitment outsourcer and your expectations for service and results will be surpassed.

Before you Hire - Check the Costs of an Employee

Posted on 7 June, 2015 at 16:57
A new employee might take your business to a whole new level. But before you commit, take a moment to think about the less obvious costs involved in taking on a new employee. 

Use the Employee Cost Calculator to understand the costs of a new employee. This provides indicative costs of what hiring will actually cost, and prompt you to also think about:
  • Salary or hourly wages
  • ACC levies, KiwiSaver contributions and Fringe Benefit Tax
  • Recruitment costs (Nb: One21 Recruitment are a contractor with specialised skills and charge lower costs than a recruitment agency charging a contingency fee - this will save you on many other costs in regards to time, advertising, processing applications, interviewing and making the right decision)
  • Equipment, tools and office space costs
  • Training and development costs
  • Bonuses and rises

After using the tool, balance the expected cost against what value you think a new employee will bring. They are likely to be worth the extra money if their skills will help you expand your business into new markets or get you more work.

20 minute delay costs employer heaps…A TIMELY REMINDER!

Posted on 2 June, 2015 at 17:06
20 minute delay costs employer heaps…

The Employment Relations Authority has upheld an employee’s personal grievance claim for unjustified dismissal because the 90-day trial clause in his contract was ineffective.

The clause was correctly worded, the employee was given a copy of the contract and signed it before he started work. 

So what went wrong for the employer?

The ERA held that the clause failed to be effective for two reasons (either would have been sufficient to set aside the clause).

  1. The employer did not sign the agreement until 20 minutes after the employee commenced work so the employee was already employed when the contract was signed.
  2. The employee was only given the contract the evening before commencing work and therefore had no reasonable opportunity to take independent advice on the agreement before signing it the next morning.

As a result, the 90-day trial clause was out and so the employee’s dismissal failed to follow any proper procedures and was unjustified.

The employer was ordered to pay three months lost wages and $6,000 compensation.

An expensive outcome for the failure to give the employee the contract in enough time for him to get advice on it, and for not ensuring both the employee and employer signed before he commenced work. 

How much time is needed for getting advice can depend on the circumstances but at least a couple of work days would be the minimum. Allow more if the employee asks for further time. Their start date must be delayed if they have not yet signed.

How an RPO works

Posted on 18 April, 2014 at 1:08

Recruitment Process Outsourcing is where an employer outsources or transfers all or part of its recruitment activities to an external service provider who specializes in this area (such as One21 - The Recruitment Outsourcer). We act as the 'internal' recruitment function for your company for either a portion or all of the job and can manage the entire recruiting/hiring process or just parts of it. 

We usually work very closely with the Human Resource or Hiring Managers as the recruitment arm of the business, manage any collaborative relationships with specialist recruitment agencies when necessary and take care of all the advertising and marketing of the role vacancy, all communications and arrangements with applicants and every other aspect of the recruitment process. 

An RPO does not charge a commission of the candidates annual salary, we are paid on an hourly basis or a fixed fee for the project and when we work with agencies they lower their commission to account for the fact that we are sharing the workload and they are benefiting from our client relationship. 

A properly managed RPO will improve a company's time to hire, increase the quality of the candidate pool and window of opportunity to attract the best talent, offer the latest in technology for marketing and applicant tracking systems, provide verifiable metrics, reduce cost significantly and improve on compliance. 

Thats us in a nutshell... :)
