Your brand is a symbol of your reputation – which can evoke an immediate reaction from current and prospective customers. And while a brand is completely intangible, it can be the single most valuable asset in any business. Franchisors can do more to prevent such damaging issues arising – such as provisioning payroll and workplace advice to franchises or partnering with service providers to ensure compliance and mitigate risk across their network – leveraging your economies of scale in the process.
The Fair Work Ombudsman is now targeting franchisors to make them potentially liable to prosecution in the event of any contraventions of the Fair Work Act by their franchisees.
EI offers human resources and subscription plans to reduce the risk of brand damage and accessory liability
through non-compliance of franchisees, with volume discounting available for franchise networks.
