What’s Included in the Employment Contract Bundle?

Our Employment Contract Bundle includes a range of employment contracts and policies to help you manage your team:

1. Full Time Employment Contract

Use our handy Full Time Employment Contract template to employ new full time staff.

This contract covers all of the important terms of employment, including start date, position and duties, hours of work, remuneration, probation, leave and termination.

Full time employees generally work 38 hours per week, have regular hours and have an expectation of ongoing work.

 

2. Part Time Employment Contract

Use our handy Part Time Employment Contract template to employ new part time staff.

This contract covers all of the important terms of employment, including start date, position and duties, hours of work, remuneration, probation, leave and termination.

Part time employees generally work less than 38 hours per week, have regular hours and are entitled to the same benefits as a full-time employee, but on a pro rata basis

 

3. Casual Employment Contract

Use our handy Casual Employment Contract template to employ new casual staff.

This contract covers all of the important terms of employment, including start date, position and duties, hours of work and rate of pay.

Casual employees do not have any set hours or guarantee of ongoing work, unlike part time or full time employees. Casual employees provide businesses with a great deal of flexibility as they can be hired as needed.

Casual employees are paid a higher hourly pay rate (casual loading) but do not receive entitlements such as annual leave, sick leave, notice upon termination and redundancy pay.

 

4. Independent Contractor Agreement

Need some help? Looking to outsource? No problem, with an Independent Contractor Agreement you can engage a contractor to help you deliver amazing service to your clients.

An Independent Contractor Agreement helps to set the ground rules so that both parties can understand their obligations from the start. This contract contains all the essential ingredients, including services, payment, confidentiality, termination and limitation of liability, plus much more!

Independent contractors work for themselves, are free to accept or refuse work, control their own working times and provide their own tools and equipment. You should visit the ATO’s website to learn the tax and super obligations for both employees and contractors, and understand the differences between them.

 

5. Non-Disclosure Agreement

Give your business extra peace of mind by asking employees and contractors to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement before you hire them. A Non-Disclosure Agreement (also known as an NDA or Confidentiality Agreement) means you can be 100% sure that your precious business information is protected. You should always get the agreement signed before you reveal any confidential information to make sure it’s effective.

Even if you’re just in early discussions with another party, you should get a Non-Disclosure Agreement signed to be safe.

 

6. Cyber Security Policy

Protect the security of technology and information assets in your business. If your organisation uses the internet – for email, banking, running a website or other activities – you need to know how to keep your information and assets safe.

A Cyber Security Policy includes rules and processes your employees and contractors should follow to safeguard your business.

According to a 2016 report by cybersecurity firm Symantec, 43% of cyber-attacks are targeted against small businesses. Businesses who don’t have a cyber security policy in place could be leaving themselves open to cyber attacks and legal issues.

 

7. WHS Policy

A WHS Policy (Workplace Health and Safety Policy) outlines your commitment to ensuring the health and safety of your employees and others in your workplace.

Business owners have an obligation to provide a safe workplace for their workers and other people that interact with their business. Part of this duty is to identify and eliminate or reduce risks.

The goal of this policy is to achieve a safe and incident free workplace. Having a good workplace health and safety policy and procedure in your business helps to ensure risks are identified and managed appropriately.

 

8. Working From Home Policy

A Working From Home Policy outlines the working arrangements and health and safety guidelines for employees who are working remotely or from home.

You can use this template to increase flexibility within your business, clearly outline the procedures to be followed and help to set the ground rules in black and white so everyone is clear on their obligations.

The COVID19 pandemic has forced many businesses to implement working from home arrangements for the first time and introduced new risks which you may have never faced or anticipated before.

It’s important to understand that employers may be liable for injuries and incidents sustained by workers in their homes even though they have little control over the home environment.

 

9. Expenses Policy

An Expenses Policy sets out the rights and responsibilities for expenses incurred in the course of employment. It provides a framework for how employees can claim and be reimbursed for reasonable and authorised expenses that are incurred while doing working for the business.

 

Employer Obligations

We recommend that you consult the Fair Work website to check any Awards and agreements which may apply before you use these templates.

As an employer, it is your responsibility to pay at least the minimum wage and entitlements to your employees under the applicable modern award or enterprise agreement.

You must also provide all new employees with a copy of the Fair Work Information Statement by law.

You can view a handy guide to hiring new employees HERE

 

Are my employees covered by an Award?

Awards apply to employers and employees depending on the industry they work in and the type of job worked. Every award has information about who it covers in the coverage clause (usually clause 4) and the job classifications (usually in the pay clause or a schedule).

There are more than 100 industry or occupation awards that cover most people who work in Australia. An employer can be covered by more than one award depending on the jobs the employees do.

You can use the Find My Award tool to check for award coverage on the Fair Work website. In some cases there may not be an award that covers your industry/job role (this is known as “award-free”).

If you are unsure about the status of an employee, you should seek legal advice.

 

Are these templates legally binding?

Absolutely!

All of our templates have been drafted by qualified Australian lawyers who hold an Australian legal practicing certificate.

We are affiliated with a commercial law firm based in Sydney.
