Employment - General

An employer is responsible for ensuring all their employees receive certain basic employment rights. Although some industries require employers to meet different requirements, the main obligations include:

  • A "Day 5" Statement to be provided within 5 days of commencing employment
  • A written statement of terms and conditions of employment within 2 months of commencing employment
  • A written statement of pay or ‘payslip’ at each pay period 
  • A minimum wage
  • A maximum working week 
  • Unpaid breaks during working hours
  • Annual leave from work 
  • A minimum amount of notice before termination of employment 
  • The maintenance of records in relation to their employees and their entitlements
