Fair Work Australia have brought several Industrial Relations changes into effect as part of the Secure Jobs, Better Pay Act 2022 that business owners must understand and comply with. Some of these changes came into effect on 7 December 2022, while others will commence throughout the year.
As an employer, you need to be aware of the changes and timelines. Specifically, you should review and update any pay secrecy terms and employment conditions, ensure job advertisements comply with new regulations, review flexible working policies, consider fixed term contracts, and understand the new paid and family domestic violence leave entitlements.
Employers should ensure they stay current with the latest awards and agreements and comply with the Fair Work changes. For more detailed information regarding timings of these changes, visit the Fair Work Commission website.
