Is your business in the Department of Labour's sights?

From April 1st this year all employers must have updated employment agreements or letters of amendment reflecting the new laws introduced last year, specifically; hours of work and Health and Safety.

This is a major headache for most employers and no April fools joke!

Employers may not be able to require staff to work extra hours, without new hours of work clauses.

If health and safety information is not updated employers could face considerable penalties if there is an incident, including fines or jail time.

Any clauses that currently restrict secondary employment may now be unlawful and such clauses may need to be removed from employment agreements.

Deductions from wages can be challenged without adequate consultation and written agreement, making it difficult to recover money that you have legitimately lost due to an employee’s actions.

Without good quality, up-to-date employment documents employers face many risks, this could undermine the entire employment relationship and cost you money.

Contact MyHR today and we’ll make sure your business gets through these challenges and complies with current employment law.
