I have known John Tamplin since 1999 when I was introduced to him by my HR Manager at the time.  I was immediately taken with his honest and straight forward approach and decided on the spot that he would add value to my business.  In my opinion, his professionalism, substantial knowledge and focus on customer service are second to none.  He has always been there when I needed him, often at very short notice.

John has successfully represented the businesses that I have run in the Industrial Relations Tribunal, helped to negotiate complex staff disputes, terminations and agreements. In short, using his services has ensured compliance with all HR/IR legislation.  I rely on his guidance and judgement and he has never let me down in all the time that I have worked with him.

I will continue to work with John as a valued partner.  I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to any other businesses.

My name is John Yenn and I have known and worked with John Tamplin for over 20 years.

I have been in the printing industry for 42 years and currently hold the position of Operations Director at Hannapack, Australia's largest independently owned printing and packaging company.

Prior to this role I was the Operations Director of Wadepack Ltd, Australia's third largest printing and packaging company.

In my long association with John I have developed an enormous respect for his integrity, ability and foresight. We have had a great personal and working relationship.

John has compiled an employment manual for use by companies that if followed will avoid the pitfalls of employing and terminating staff as well as many other aspect of handling the day to day issues that arise with employees.

John's depth of knowledge in these matters is superior to anyone else I have dealt with in the industry and this comes through clearly in the concise and comprehensive presentation of the manual.

I would strongly recommend that any company that employs staff in this current legislative minefield would be well served by following the advice and procedures contained within this manual.

We are a group medical practice and were fortunate to have been introduced to John a few years ago (can’t remember exactly how long it has been) when there were changes to regulations with work choices.  He gave us invaluable help, and has continued to always be ready at the drop of an email, to help out whenever we have any queries. His knowledge of the industrial laws is amazing and it has given us great confidence that we have structured our work contracts correctly.

I have worked With John Tamplin for over 15 years. He has greatly assisted me with some at times difficult Industrial Relations matters whilst I was at Macdonald & Masterson Printing.

I have not met anyone in my 26 years in the Printing Industry with the knowledge,experience and wisdom that John has when advising business owners in Industrial Relations. He is the only person I would recommend his New Book will also be an invaluable handbook for any business owner or H.R. Manager.
