The Fair Work Act 2009 imposes a number of obligations on employers, including minimum employment entitlements contained in the National Employment Standards (NES). The NES regulate maximum working hours, leave entitlements, flexible work requests, public holidays and notice of termination and redundancy pay. The NES apply to all employees and there are potentially significant penalties for non-compliance.
Identifying minimum pay rates for employees can be complex. It is crucial for employees to be paid their minimum entitlements. Any failure to pay employees their minimum entitlements can result in significant financial penalties, as well as underpayment of wages claims. We can assist you to identify employee pay rates, including related issues such as payment for overtime and weekends, allowances and “loaded” rates of pay.
All employees should be engaged in accordance with written contracts of employment containing terms of employment. Employment contracts should still be used even if you have an enterprise agreement.
Workplace policies allow employers to set rules and procedures that apply to employees, and reduce the risk of liability in the event of an employee claim or investigation by a regulator. The kinds of issues that can be covered by workplace policies are: employee behaviour (respectful treatment); equal opportunity and anti-discrimination; work health and safety; use of company vehicles; drug testing; and inclement weather.
It is critical for employers to have good procedures in place to reduce the risk of workplace accidents and to manage injured or ill employees.
We can help you understand your obligations in respect of injured or ill employees under the Return to Work Act 2014. We can assess whether your business may benefit from a Return to Work Coordinator, who can assist with developing and implementing return to work solutions.
We can review your safety policies and procedures and assist you to understand your obligations under the Work Health and Safety Act 2012.
