Employment law is one of the major areas that small business owners constantly get caught out with.
It can be a very tricky area when it comes to proper awards, categorisation of employees, employees v contractors, proper classification of casual employment, part-time employment or full-time employment and what each of those categorisations means for leave entitlements, leave loading, accruing of annual leave.
It’s sometimes an absolute minefield and at the end of the day, the buck stops with you as the business owner to make sure that employees are properly paid in accordance with the Law, otherwise face a nasty back-pay claim, fines or even worse.
Unfair dismissal and unlawful termination can be also tricky to navigate, especially when you may not have in-house HR or consultant on call.
Intellectual property rights are like any other property right. They allow creators, or owners, of patents, trademarks or copyrighted works to benefit from their own work or investment in a creation.
“Intellectual property rights reward creativity and human endeavor, which fuel the progress of humankind”
