The paper 'The Role of Holden Human Resource Team in the Continued Operation of the Company Tills Its Closure" is a good example of a management case study. The purpose of this report is to identify how my Australian Holden Human resource team will solve issues pertaining to the maintenance of an efficient workforce to continue with productivity and development of strategies for the ultimate reduction and lay-off of its employees in accordance with the Australian Industrial law and consideration of jurisprudence. Some of the Australian industrial laws it will consider include the Fair work Act 2009, the Australian Human Rights Commission Act 1986and the commonwealth equal opportunity act.
Additionally, we will consider the sources of labor law, including the Work Relation Act 1996 (Cth) that provides different methods of treating contracts between employees and employers’ . The Company has expressed that its continued operation in Australia was no longer an option. Therefore, the company was preparing to close shop in the year 2017. This action will see up to two thousand nine hundred employees lose their jobs. The intended exist will see the closure of the company’ s manufacturing plants in Adelaide and Port Melbourne where many workers are employed.
However, before its closure, it intends to continue its production in an efficient way. There should be normal production regardless of the future decision of the company. Nevertheless, the company states that building cars in Australia is not sustainable. It is the responsibility of my team to assess the best possible way to address this situation, according to the Australian Industrial law and the International laws on Labor. It also has a responsibility to the Head office in Detroit to make sure that the announcement will in no way change the current performance of the company.
This report, therefore, seeks to give a solution to approaches that my team can use to make sure that there is a continued and efficient production in the company.
