THE Workplace Liaison Service informs small businesses what they can achieve under a workplace agreement, detailing the options for employment conditions and arrangements.

Department of Productivity and Labour Relations assistant director of fair workplaces Malcolm Timmins says the aim of the service is to stimulate businesses to consider where they want to go with their employment relations to improve their business.

“The important part of any workplace agreement is what it contains,” he said.

“The workplace agreement gives small businesses, in particular, the opportunity to create conditions of employment and work arrangements suitable to the needs of both the business and the employee.

“After a visit by one of our officers, small businesses will know where they are now with their obligations under current employment laws and awards, have a vision of what they can achieve and an action plan to follow to develop an effective workplace agreement.”

Mr Timmins said Workplace Liaison officers will, on request of the employer, discuss the issues with the employees of a business to ensure they are fully informed of their rights.

The Workplace Liaison Service is free to small businesses.

Quick answers to pay and employment conditions as well as employment rights and obligations can be obtained from Wageline on 1300 655 266.
