Recent Updates in the Employment Law Space

Following a raft of updates in the employment law space, we encourage employers to ensure their employment agreements are fit for purpose and in line with recent updates.

With everything else employers have been dealing with, you may have missed some of the changes in the following areas which might affect your employment agreements:

  • Minimum wage
  • Public holidays
  • COVID-19 related developments, including force majeure and/or business interruption
  • Family violence leave
  • Sick leave
  • Parental leave
  • Bereavement leave
  • 90-day trial period or probationary period
  • Holiday pay
  • Discretionary payments; and 
  • Fair pay agreements

Of course, there are also some practical changes to how many businesses are operating with COVID-19 considerations and restrictions.  If you haven’t had your employment agreements reviewed in the last year or so, we’d recommend checking that they cover your minimum requirements and reflect your values and approach with your team. 

Our Workplace Law Team are available to review and update your employment agreement templates, advise on any COVID-related queries and answer any general employment questions you may have.
