Other Employment Law Changes
Health and Safety wasn’t the only legislation updated last year and many of the other changes didn’t receive the same amount of news time. The new requirements which relate to working hours, cancellation of shifts and restrictions on secondary employment, are coming into play from 1 April 2017. All current agreements must be updated to reflect the changes by this date and all new agreements should already comply with the new legislation. This means that your current staff will need to receive an updated agreement if any of the changes relate to your business.
If you have staff who work irregular hours or shift patterns or who possibly work more than one job then feel free to contact me for an employment agreement review to ensure that you are up to date. Employers can face fines of up to $20,000 for non-compliance so let's get it sorted for peace of mind.
