Setting up a Business
The Fair Work Ombudsman has developed industry-specific information on its website for the Australian retail sector.
Retail employers can access materials specifically designed for small to medium sized businesses at www.fairwork.gov.au/retail
The new web resource will answer typical questions from employers and point them quickly to the information they need on Modern Awards, National Employment Standards and simple tips regarding staff rosters, recording leave, timesheets, hours of work, higher duties etc.
Retailers can also obtain information by calling the Fair Work Infoline on 13 13 94 between 9am and 6pm weekdays.
Employees in the retail sector are also encouraged to visit www.fairwork.gov.au - where there are also specific sections for young workers.
