Are you aware of your requirement as an employer to provide any new employee with a Fair Work Information Statement? Did you know that if you employ a part time person that many Modern Awards require you to enter into an agreement regarding the hours that will be worked. The NSW Industrial Relations have a recorded webinar called 'Employer Obligations when engaging a new employee' which will be available from the first week of April that will provide employers with details relating to best practice process as well as legal obligations when engaging new employees.
