Termination and redundancy are governed by stringent laws in Australia. Employers must adhere to these laws and treat employees in a fair manner, knowing the law and protecting your business is important and Namadgi Legal can walk you through the process to make sure you don’t make any fatal mistakes.
Notice of termination and redundancy pay are covered under the national employment standards (nes), which applies to all employees covered by the national workplace relations system (except for casuals).
This outlines the minimum entitlement to notice period (or payment in lieu of notice) and redundancy payment that an employer must give an employee to terminate their employment.
At Namadgi Legal, we can help you navigate redundancy, and determine what is fair and lawful.
