What do the new IR laws mean for your business?

Industrial relations legislative changes will impact your workplace practices. The closing loopholes legislation* has now passed with amendments now in effect, with others to take effect in July, August, November, and again in January 2025.

One of those is casual employment. If you employ casual employees, you need to know what it means for you, because the new financial penalties for non-compliance can be significant.

There’s no need to tackle these matters on your own.  Our Employment Law Specialists are here to help with a practical understanding of the new laws, and the actions you need to take now to ensure you can manage the impacts.
