ER Legislation Changes
For Australian Businesses
Starting in 2022, continuing throughout 2023 and into 2024, the Australian Government has been rolling out the biggest employment relations changes we’ve seen since Fair Work was introduced in 2009.
These ER changes are mandatory and, in many instances, the compliance deadline has already passed.
That’s why we've created a series of assets to help Australian business owners and HR professionals understand what these changes mean, and what to do about them. If you need help implementing these changes in your business, please book a call and speak with an experienced member of the Employees Matters team - we're here to help!
