Reminder! All employment agreements have to be updated by 1 April 2017
General / 25 February 2017
All employers have until 1 April 2017 to ensure all their existing employment agreements are amended to reflect the changes to the new law.
We have written a number of articles outlining the employment legislative changes. To access this information click on the following links:
Many employers are unclear as to whether they need to amend their current employment agreements. Clauses such as “The employee is required to work all additional hours” Or “The hours of work will depend on the availability of work and our business demands” may not adhere to the current legislative requirements.
If you have clauses similar to this in your individual employment agreement, we recommend you contact us so we can advise whether your existing employment agreements comply with the new changes.
