Recent changes to employment legislation have prompted employers to review and modify the individual employment agreements that they have in place to ensure they are legally compliant.
Among those changes are robust record-keeping for your employees’ wages, time, holidays and leave, as well as revising some clauses in your employment agreements. Key clauses specifically refer to hours of work, availability to work, deductions from wages and salaries, restrictions on secondary employment and conflict of interest.
Employers are reminded that sanctions for non-compliance have gotten tougher, therefore, to avoid unnecessary penalties, you need to get this stuff right the first time around!
