Fair Ombudsman update
PAYROLL – Don’t miss the Fair Work Ombudsman update!
Employers are required to give new employees a Fair Work Information Statement when they commence work.
The High Court of Australia handed down a decision on 13th August 2020 about the method of accruing and taking paid personal/carer’s leave under the National Employment standards. They found that the entitlement to 10 days of personal leave can be as 1/26 of an employee’s ordinary hours of work in a year.
This decision by the High Court overturned a decision made by the Full Federal Court in August 2019.
As a result of the High Court’s decision, Fair Work has issued an updated Fair Work Information Statement for employees.
Find a copy of the updated statement on the Fair Work Ombudsman website or the Useful Info page of Swag Bookkeeping website.
