If you were allowed one word to describe the Fair Work Act, there’s a high probability that word would be ‘complex’. Just defining whether your new employee is full-time, part-time, casual, shift worker, contractor, daily hire, or working on probation is difficult, and that’s before defining the exact role.
The same role can also come under a different award if it is in a different industry, or if the candidates have different qualifications or experience.
Fair work obligations are confusing and it’s a complex piece of legislation that applies to all employers. It is important to seek sound advice to give you peace of mind you are meeting your employer obligations under the Fair Work Act.
