Whats hot in HR with HRBS
Hi

Many of our clients tell us, ‘we are ok, we pay over the Award’. However, did you know that you cannot actually contract out of an Award unless you provide a guarantee of annual earnings under the Fair Work Act? So when is the last time you ran a calculation to check your staff are still paid ‘above’ the Award? Now could be a good time. The second most common misconception employers have is that they have nobody covered by a Modern Award at their workplace. The simple fact is, if you have a receptionist, accounts staff, administration and PA’s etc they are all covered by the Clerks Award, which contains lots of unique provisions that employers can unknowingly not comply with.

The big news is the Fair Work Commission increased the national minimum wage to $640.90 per week, which is a 3% increase applied to all Modern Award minimum rates effective from the first pay period on or after 1 July 2014. Coupled with the increase to the superannuation guarantee to 9.5%, this is going to be an expensive year for employers.

Have you heard about our Membership? We offer a cost effective way for employers to have HRBS as their 'bolt on' HR Department. Click on this link to find out more: http://hrbs.com.au/our-services/hrbs-membership.aspx

Happy HR.

How do you tell an internal applicant... you're unsuccessful?
Do you tell internal applicants with no prospects of success (for whatever reason) not to waste their time and energy applying for a role? Or do we avoid this approach as we then need to answer the dreaded question no manager wants to answer and that is 'why didn't I get the job?'
