The Fair Work Commission has recently made changes to the Fair Work Act relating to employment contracts. These changes will significantly impact employers. It is important to ensure that your employment contracts comply with the new regulations. Reviewing your employment contracts will protect your business from penalties and any employment disputes.
Here are some key changes to employment contracts:
- Pay secrecy clauses are no longer allowed.
- Employers must provide employees with more information about their employment conditions.
- Employers must offer flexible working arrangements to eligible employees.
- Unpaid parental leave has been extended.
If you do not comply with the new changes to the Fair Work Act, you could face significant penalties such as fines and legal action.
Employers who do not comply could be:
- fined up to $6,300 for each breach;
- obligated to repay employees for any wages or benefits that they are entitled to, and have yet to be paid.
- required to compensate employees for any loss or damages that they have suffered; or/and
