Are you thinking about hiring someone for your business? Or maybe you’re not in a position to bring on new staff just yet, but you want to understand the process? When you’re ready to grow your business, we have information to help you get it right.

The newly developed Hiring employees checklist will help you meet Australian laws when hiring an employee and step you through the employment process.

The Hiring employees checklist will help you:

  • understand all mandatory government regulations and obligations when hiring
  • complete tasks in a logical order, such as:
    • assessing the impacts and costs
    • preparing your employee
    • paying your employee
    • superannuation and tax
    • records you need to keep
  • keep track of your progress by “ticking off” each step
