Complimentary briefing on your obligations under the Fair Work Act

Written on the 16 February 2011 by Gavin Hanrahan

... or other workplace issues

It's now just over 12 months since the Fair Work Act came into full effect, including the application of Modern Awards and the National Employment Standards across most workplaces.  Additionally, there have been further changes which took effect from 1 January 2011 eg.  Paid Parental Leave.

We're finding that quite a few employers are still not fully aware of their obligations under the new federal system...and often when we have a chat with them it becomes apparent that they're not fully compliant.

If you're unsure of your obligations under the new system and you'd like to have a complimentary chat with me about it, please give me a call on 02 490 48037 or send me an email and I'll arrange a mutually convenient time to come to your office to meet with you and your relevant HR/Payroll staff.
