Employment laws change continually, making it a challenge to work out whether your business is compliant. Many business owners have told us they have sleepless nights, lying awake worrying about whether they’re meeting their legal obligations. We’re here to help.

Employment Classification

How do you decide whether to employ someone full-time, part-time or on a casual basis? Would a contractor be a better option? What are the pros and cons? Each classification comes with certain obligations which need to be fully understood before making an informed decision.

We’ll take the time to sit down with you to discuss your specific circumstances so we can advise you on the most appropriate plan of action.

Award Benchmarking

Working out which Awards apply to your employees is not always straightforward. Are you paying your staff correctly and what are their entitlements? How do you know if your business is compliant?

We review employee roles to identify the correct award and provide a salary audit to ensure it meets a BOOT (Better Off Overall Test). We explain complex obligations such as penalty rates, work hours and overtime to enable you to create a cost-effective and risk-free workforce.

Employment Contracts

Since the introduction of the Fair Work Act (2009) and Modern Awards, many business owners have realised they have outdated employment contracts which may be placing them at significant risk.

We take the mystery out of employment contracts by creating easy-to-read documents while meeting your specific business needs from a risk perspective and ensure you are compliant with all relevant employment laws.

HR Policies

Does your company policies reflect social media use? Do you understand your responsibilities in the prevention of bullying? It’s essential for everyone in your business to be on the same page and to have clear boundaries.

We audit your current policies and perform a risk assessment. We provide easy-to-understand policies, forms and procedures and can deliver training to assist you with staff implementation. We help your business to develop HR policies that set a standard so everyone understands how things are done.
