Hiring and Firing? Fair Work can help

Growing your business will most likely involve employing other people. Choosing the right person for the job and ensuring the relationship between you and your workers remains productive and happy is imperative for a healthy workplace.

The Australian Government’s Fair Work Ombudsman assists employers and employees to understand workplace laws by providing information, education, tools, templates and guides to resolve a wide range of workplace issues.

The Ombudsman services are free and the website has a comprehensive range of information about pay, leave, terminating employment, employee entitlements, awards and agreements.

Free online education is also available, covering a variety of topics including:

  • hiring employees,
  • managing performance, and
  • handling difficult conversations in the workplace

If you’d like more information about understanding workplace laws, visit the Fair Work Ombudsman website.
