Long-standing staff members are often loved and valued members of the school community.

  • Understanding relevant contractual rights and award provisions
  • Managing the risks of age discrimination
  • Decision-making and associated processes - involving the Board
  • Appropriate strategies for replacement, immediate and/or longer term
  • Where an investigation is required:
  • who will conduct it?
  • suspension issues
  • communication strategy
  • Alternative dispute resolution options
  • Dealing with the fall-out: the school community and stakeholders
  • Case study: The elderly property manager
