Engaging a new employee is an important decision for your business. In addition to our recruiting services, Australian Workplace Strategies offers comprehensive services in preparing and reviewing employment agreements. Employers must be familiar with the 10 National Employment Standards (NES) that apply to all employees in the national system and keep abreast of wage increases – usually effective from 1 July each year. Importantly, all new employees must be provided with a Fair Work Information Statement.
