As an employer, you must comply with workplace rights and obligations. You have legal and regulatory responsibilities under:

  • the federal Fair Work Act 2009
  • the National Employment Standards
  • potentially under awards or enterprise agreements.

The Fair Work Ombudsman has a dedicated section on their website for small businesses, where you can learn about:

  • pay, including keeping your records up to date
  • leave
  • employee entitlements
  • awards and agreements.

To find out more about your rights and obligations as an employer, visit the Small business section on the Fair Work Ombudsman website.
