The Complete HR Bundle

The CCIQ total bundle offers members a comprehensive suite of polices, templates, step by step guides, checklists and procedures. The bundle provides members with the human resource and industrial relations infrastructure required to manage employees lawfully.

This team of workplace relations lawyers and HR experts have decades of experience assisting employers in their legal obligations and rights, and HR best practice processes.
