Q. What are the privacy implications in a
sale of business situation?
A. You do not generally need to obtain
employee consent to give a prospective
buyer of your business access to records
of generalised personal information about
your employees, provided your employees
would reasonably expect that this access
would be given. Often at a preliminar y
stage only aggregated information that is
not personal information will be provided
to a prospective buyer. It might also be
illegal to tell the employees about the sale
(for example due to ‘insider trading’ laws),
which is an exemption of the requirement to
consent for disclosure.
Exclusive to AHRI members, AHRI:ASSIST
provides valuable online resources for HR.

For Cassie Alexander, age inclusivity was about thinking outside the box. “ We saw
a gap in the market for the younger workforce,” Cassie says about the Federal
Department of Finance’s Career Starter Program.
“A nd our program gives them a taste... before they actually commence studies.”
Finance established the program to address the entry-level workforce gap and to
attract, develop and retain future talent.
The program was selected as the winner of the Susan Ryan Age Diversity Award
during last year’s AHRI Awards. It stood out as an example of how outside-the-
box thinking and complex problem solving can improve diversity and reveal new
opportunities for the whole team.
“ Having that pipeline of those energetic, young career starters coming through
really changes the culture of the department.”
When we think of age inclusivity, senior-aged workers might be the first to come
to mind. But it's also about including the younger student generation into the fold,
those who are eager for industry experience.
“The Age Diversity award signals to us that what we’re doing... is really strong. It
also gives recognition to the work HR is doing to support this program.”
