Contract and handbook changes

  • Date: 01 April 2021

CHANGES to employee contracts and handbooks were introduced in April 2020 but may have been missed due to the pandemic.

The additional information that needs to be included is:

  • Details of any probationary period, or note if there is no probationary period
  • The actual days the employee is required to work. Whether these days are variable and, if so, how they vary or how that variation is to be determined
  • Details of remuneration and benefits
  • Training entitlement including any mandatory training or training that is required but is not paid for by the employer.
