What are the National Employment Standards, and how do they affect my business?
As an employer, it is important that you are compliant with workplace laws.
The National Employment Standards (NES) are 11 minimum entitlements that apply to all employees in Australia. These minimum employment standards include work hours, arrangements, leave entitlements, etc.
In addition to the NES, specific industries also have modern awards for employee entitlements. Market-sounding remuneration is exposure and risk for any business owner. Speaking with us to ensure your business is compliant would be a good idea.
What are the benefits of implementing workplace policies?
By having custom workplace policies in place, your business can benefit from consistency in its managerial and operational procedures. Proactively managing risk by providing clear standard operating procedures to your employees helps reduce detrimental workplace claims.
Why do I need custom business/workplace policies?
Policies clearly set out the expectations of the business and transparency to employees on its day-to-day operations. Businesses need to have clear guidelines in the workplace. Policies will minimise ambiguity and disputes relating to potential competing interests. Well-drafted policies help to reduce time on people management, shifting focus and priorities to business growth and profitability.
What do I need to provide employees before the commencement of their employment?
Employers must provide employees with a copy of the Fair Work Information Statement which details their rights under the National Employment scheme. It is also best practice to have a contract in place before an employee commences to mitigate conflict and issues down the track.
How can employers prevent discrimination in the workplace?
An employee has the right to feel safe in the workplace for which they work.
Employers can facilitate this by implementing anti-discrimination policies and introducing processes to address discrimination events.
Complaints should be dealt with promptly, and discipline procedures should be carried out where appropriate.
