Mar '14
Ethical Clothing Australia has launched an online Award training program to assist textile, clothing and footwear businesses to navigate their legal obligations. The online training program was developed in response to demands from small businesses who struggle to find the time to attend external training programs.
 
Businesses can now access step-by-step information regarding their obligations under the Textile, Clothing, Footwear & Associated Industries Award 2010 and relevant legislation from wherever they are, at any time. 
 
The online industry training presentation is available in Flash and mobile friendly (iPad/iPhone) versions via the Ethical Clothing Australia website and can also be viewed on our YouTube channel.
 
Topics covered include: 
-Board of Reference registration
-Obligations when employing homeworkers or when outsourcing to suppliers
-Skill levels and wages
-Written agreements to outsource
-Make price calculations 
-The keeping of work records (garment specification sheets)
 
Documents required as part of businesses’ obligations can also be downloaded throughout the presentation, as well as support material including ECA’s updated Guide to the Award.
 
The online training program is part of Ethical Clothing Australia’s ongoing commitment to helping the TCF industry understand their legal obligations and, in doing so, facilitating an ethical and transparent local clothing and footwear industry.
