Our Point of Difference - Why THA?

One of the most sought-after services the THA offers is our expert Employment Relations advice we provide free to all of our members online, over the phone and in person. We have three main goals: to be timely, proactive and value-adding to you and your business.

These three tenants complement our proactive solutions focused approach to provide an excellent experience to all our members can always be best prepared to resolve before it arrives at Fair Work.

Merv Saltmarsh

Employment Relations / Business Improvement Manager

"Our team is membership driven and we pride ourselves on developing continued and long-term relationships in providing and maintaining timely and proactive rather than reactive solutions focused services and the “point of difference” as distinct from other similar organisations. THA continue to promote the services available to current members, as inclusive and vigilant in also marketing to potential members as proactive rather than reactive in mitigating potential risks and exposures.

Value adding is reducing potential legal costs associated with alternate organizations. Industrial regulation in Australia has become increasingly complex with the interaction between modern awards, enterprise agreements, contracts of employment and other elements of the Fair Work Act including the National Employment Standards.

With intimate knowledge of the sector and many years of experience, we can simplify the process for you, minimise exposure and risk, and ensure you are not only complying with your obligations but achieving ‘best practice’ in your businesses.

As the hospitality industry’s own representative group, when you collaborate with us you can be assured that you receive expert advice, based on intimate knowledge and with genuine concern of the outcomes for your business "
