The Fair Work Ombudsman has produced Best Practice Guides to assist small to medium-sized businesses in implementing best practice initiatives. Working at best practice helps employers and employees achieve happier, fairer and more productive workplaces.
The Best Practice Guides provide guidance on important workplace issues. They highlight key aspects of the federal workplace relations system, information on best practice concepts, strategies on how these concepts can be implemented, the benefits for the business in doing so and where to find more information.
The Fair Work Ombudsman also has fact sheets that cover a range of topics and set out minimum rights and responsibilities under workplace law. These can be found at Fact sheets.
