Why The Fair Work Statement Is So Important To New Employees

fair work - 27/07/2018

If you’re an employer, a new Financial Year means an update to the Australian Fair Work Statement.

The Statement forms part of the National Employment Standards (NES) and applies to all employees covered by the national workplace relations system, regardless of any award, agreement or contract.

The Statement must be provided to every employee before or at the commencement of employment, and provides the employee with key information about the conditions of their employment.

By including the Statement, the employer provides the employee with a framework for which their employment will be determined. In addition, it provides help in the case of any disputes regarding their employment. You can download a copy of the Fair Work Statement here.

A major part of the Fair Work Statement is the National Employment Standards, which outline ten mandatory employment standards that must be provided to every employee. All employees are covered by these standards, regardless of the Award they are a part of, their contract type or contract length. You can find out more information about the National Employment Standards here.

WorkPro enables you to deliver the Fair Work Statement as a mandatory online task for your worker to read/agree.

Using WorkPro for this task means it is also recorded on the compliance certificate that is produced as part of the induction module verification.

We automatically update the Statement very year, so if your candidate logs back in to WorkPro post 1st July every year, they will be expected to read and accept the Statement again.

It’s all part of the compliance service you have come to expect from WorkPro!
