Employment Workshops – How To Successfully Navigate Your Business Through The ATO’s Upcoming Employment Contracting Law Changes

The Australian Tax Office (ATO) has you and your small business square in their sights, and you’ve got to be prepared for these changes. Fair Work Ombudsman, Sarah Parker has recently supported comments by the ATO Commissioner, Chris Jordan, to further clarity and define the ongoing grey areas between Contractor and Employee (see link). She sees this as a ‘major issue’’ for the work place watchdog. This is in light of the FWO’s small business helpline sourcing over 33,000 call a year.

The harsh reality is that the ATO sees the fact that you sub-contract your associates as a version of an “employee agreement” NOT a sub-contractor agreement. In fact, the ATO calls these “Sham-Contracts”.

The detailed course covers important decisions you need to make now to ensure your business strengthens over the next 90 days. We also have Senior Human Relations Advisor at Employsure, Bradley Walsh, available on the day to answer questions relating to those outside my scope of practice.
