Thelma French & Associates HR advice & consulting

Unpaid staff meetings

Tue May 22nd 2018

No doubt you have read and heard comments in the media regarding the recent case of Smiths City and the fact they have been ordered to pay staff for attending morning meetings before stores open.

This is currently not uncommon, so if it has been happening in your business, please call to discuss what options may be open to you to rectify the situation.


We needed an expert to handle an issue that was both difficult and delicate. Thelma handled this professionally enabling the staff involved to feel that she was able to help them through the situation. Thelma’s real strength is the ease she can build a rapport with managers enabling them to deal with the hard issues of the day. I have no hesitation in recommending Thelma French.
