Inducting club staff and the Fair Work Information Statement

Have all the staff at your club received a Fair Work Information Statement?Does your club have an induction procedure when employing new staff that ensures all new staff receive a copy of the Fair Work Information Statement?

The national workplace relations system requires employers to give each new employee a Fair Work Information Statement (the Statement) before, or as soon as possible after, the employee starts employment

The Fair Work Information Statement is one of ten (10) minimum standards in the National Employment Standards (NES) that protect employees.

The Statement contains information about:

  • the National Employment Standards (NES)
  • the effect on an employee’s NES entitlements when there is a transfer of business
  • modern awards
  • agreement making under the Fair Work Act 2009
  • individual flexibility arrangements
  • the right to freedom of association
  • termination of employment
  • right of entry (including the protection of personal information by privacy laws)
  • the role of the Fair Work Ombudsman and Fair Work Australia.
