At present there are 122 separate Modern Awards, to to mention the numerous Enterprise Agreements and other arrangements in Australian workplaces.
Each of these industry specific modern awards contain approximately 30 separate clauses and accompanying schedules.
The Fair Work Commission has in the past applied considerable penalties, amounts of up to $51,000 per award breach against businesses for failing to pay individuals according to the terms of an Award, or breaching other related award obligations. Incorrect award interpretation can be costly, but can also lead to damage of reputation and reduced staff morale and work output.
Our one hour webinar will focus on conditions within the modern award for Nurses and other Health Professionals.
David will answer a number of common questions, including - when is a casual no longer a casual?
