Changes to Employment Law

Don’t forget; the minimum wage increases to $17.70 per hour as of 1 April 2019.

In addition, the Domestic Violence – Victims’ Protection Act 2018 also came into effect introducing up to 10 days’ paid leave each year and access to flexible working arrangements for employees affected by domestic violence. Are you familiar with the obligations under the Act and have a comprehensive policy in place?
