Managing the performance of employees with mental health issues

Two of the Victorian Chamber’s experts come together to discuss how to manage a situation where an employee may be underperforming due to poor mental health and what steps can be taken.

Anton Zytnik, Acting Manager of Health, Safety and Wellbeing at the Victorian Chamber, joins Principal Workplace Relations Consultant, Amy Bell to discuss the importance of managing mental health issues in the workplace.

As a dual-qualified lawyer specialising in employment law, Amy shares her insights into how mental health issues can arise through the disciplinary process in the workplace and how businesses are best to react and respond.

Amy also explains the reasonable measures a business can make to accommodate employees who may be struggling with mental health issues and how to create a supportive working environment for your employee’s mental health.
