Employment law, including fair work obligations and minimum standards for employees is continually evolving, and this ever-changing legal landscape needs careful navigation by business owners. Whether you are looking to hire new staff, are having performance management issues or are restructuring your business and need to consider retention of staff, Kenny Spring Solicitors can guide you through this complex legal area.
Employment legislation is complex
Australia has a well-developed workplace relations system, designed to provide flexibility and certainty to both employers and employees. However, the legislation around workplace relations is complex and layered, with businesses having to adhere to several pieces of legislation as well as a set of national employment standards for all Australian employees, occupational health and safety regulations, and superannuation (pension) payments.
