    help with basic contract of employment

    I am just adding in a few bit's and pieces into the basic "contract of employment" , it's for shop staff. Can anybody think of anything else/ or worded better. Cheers. One other thing - they normally work 5 and 1/2 days a week, the 1/2 day, if taken, would count as a whole holiday day - or would it count as 1/2? And how many days am I required to give as holiday - the usual 15 or more as they work 5 and 1/2 days? cheers again,

    opening a bussiness was easy compared to the HR I need to learn, it's a bit off putting

    Please make sure you stay within line with Sectoral Determination 9. You have a minimum wage.

    The Department of Labour lists sectoral determinations here. The one for the wholesale and retail sector is near the bottom and should be the latest applicable.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    There are only two areas now in SD 9. There is a copy in the Toolkit. The minimum wage changed half way through this year when the DOL decided to rid themselves of areas c through e. The TBVC countries have been removed as have the companies with less than 5 employees. Don't be fooled by this determination. There is another determination that overrules this one if you or any other company has less than 10 employees. Ministerial Determination 1: Small Business. Also found in the Toolkit.

    By the way there is no longer a separation of rural and suburbia areas.

    Does the wholesale and retail sector determination specifically mention it is overruled by the small business determination? I noticed that in terms of the small business determination this was required for the small business determination to have precedent over any other determination.

    Leave is a consecutive 21 days. So people working a 5 day week, get 15 days + the 6 days weekends. People working 6 day week, get 18 days + 3 days weekend. your guys get 16.5 days + 4,5 days weekend. The net result is the same. The confusion is the concept of 15 paid days. The non working days are considered unpaid. So your wek wage is divided by the number of days you worm, net result 21 consecutive days.
    One tip - get yourself a code of conduct.

    There are determinations within the MD1 that cover study leave and family responsibility leave. These are included in the annual leave granted. I have the full determination.

    Please remember that all clauses are by agreement between employer and employee.
