Get your Employment Agreements sorted
It is a statutory requirement that every member of your team must have a clearly written Employment Agreement, irrespective of whether they are permanent, fixed term or casual employees.
The Best Advice In 3 Easy Steps!
Employers are required by Law to retain a signed copy of each Agreement and failure to do so could result in fines of up to $10,000 per missing Agreement.
- Get your employment contracts prepared well in advance of a new employee joining your team.
- When you offer a job to a candidate, you should give them a copy of the intended Agreement at least one week before they start to ensure that they have enough time to consider all the clauses and seek advice.
- Respond to any queries and confirm the final text of the Employment Agreement
- Make sure that they sign and return this to you before they start work. This is very important, because if they do not do this there may be some clauses that you may not be able to rely upon (for example the 90-day trial period)
