These changes have far-reaching implications for many businesses and the remuneration of staff. In this webinar we examine the new modern award provisions and how they interact with set-off clauses in employment contracts, guide you through steps to ensure your business is compliant under the new workplace laws, and outline strategies and processes to prevent underpayment of staff.
Hear from our leading Employment specialists James Pomeroy and Tom Brett, with practical payroll insights from Richard Breden – General Manager, Ascender Cloud Services.
Specifically, Dr Peden will consider:
