HR Essentials – Employment

23 August 2022, Tuesday
10:00 am - 11:30 am


Human Resources is critical to your business! Often it is difficult to find the right information and it can take years to fully understand how the laws apply and what you need to do. In this session we will work through a checklist of key steps all employers need to take to ensure the essentials are covered.

The session will include:
• Checks employers must complete on the employee
• What documents employers must give to a new employee
• What documents and records employers need to keep
• How to access the information you need about pay rates
• Other obligations employers have to employees – super, tax and workers compensation

• You must be registered with the Business Connect program.
• You should be logged in and registered for the Webinar MS Teams meeting at least 5 minutes prior (and check your spam folder for the link!).
• Have a pen & paper ready to write down your questions, as well as a bottle of water.
• Online video recordings and resources will be available for those who attend and who are Business Connect customers.

This webinar is aimed at small businesses throughout NSW who have just started or have an established business and we have the capacity to host up to 500 people.
