For anyone managing employees, being kept current with their responsibilities and obligations to employees is crucially important in order to avoid falling foul of any of the differing levels of regulation affecting this area. Being able to refer to a regularly updated, single volume service that clarifies employment law is a simple way to ensure you are on top of the areas of change and uncertainty, particularly while we continue to see further challenges to the current IR laws in the courts and tribunals across the nation.

It covers critical areas including state and Commonwealth legislation, principal obligations of an employer, wages and salaries, hours of work, forms of leave, employment contracts, terminations and more.

Written by Mallesons’ employment law group it has been completely updated to reflect changes brought about by the Fair Work regime, including: modern awards, the National Employment Standards and new minimum-wage setting system.
