Audits are a great tool to identify any gaps where your business may not be compliant with the Australia workplace or taxation laws and latest legislative updates.

For example, there are plenty of legislative changes for HR to get across this year, following the implementation of the "Secure Jobs, Better Pay" Bill late last year.

One such change is around employers’ obligations when it comes to employees’ flexible work request. Starting in June 2023, new measure introduced by the Bill will make it harder for employers to refuse flexible work requests. Since employees will soon have the right to take a rejected flexible work request to the Fair Work Commission (FWC) for arbitration, now is a good time to consider you current working practices and to redesign your policies to protect your organisation.
