The importance of employer compliance and legislation

Clarissa O’Nuallain, HR Services Manager with IFAC, joins Stuart Childs on the latest Dairy Edge podcast to discuss the legislation that affects employers and that is very important for farmers who are employing people to be aware of.

Clarissa emphasised the importance of contracts being issued to staff and went on to outline the risks of not issuing these. She then discussed the probation period as well as the new minimum wage requirements and maximum hours in a week. Clarissa also discussed the new public holiday in February and how that impacts on employers and employees.

Finally, Clarissa reminded farmers that they need to review their employment legislation position and make sure that if they are not currently compliant that they make moves immediately to become compliant with the legislation and seek professional advice where necessary.
