National Employment Standards
National Employment Standards affect all businesses.
The Fair Work Act 2009 introduced 10 new National Employment Standards (NES) and a comprehensive Modern Award system which affect almost every business in Australia.
The NES consist of 10 minimum conditions of employment that all 'National System Employers' must now provide to their employees and set out weekly working hours, staff leave entitlements, termination and redundancy pay.
For many businesses - even with access to dedicated HR resources - this legislation can be complex and challenging. Without sufficient knowledge or expertise, your business could be exposed to unnecessary administrative complications and increased risks of being prosecuted.
Remember that as an employer you are responsible for complying with the National Employment Standards and heavy fines can be imposed if you breach your NES obligations.
