Workplace laws for business advisers

This online course is currently under review.

The Australian Government has made further workplace laws as part of its ‘Closing Loopholes’ changes.

From 27 February 2024 the maximum penalty amounts for certain contraventions of the Fair Work Act have increased. These increased penalties can apply against companies who are not small business employers.

Course overview

As a business adviser (for example: accountant, bookkeeper, payroll specialist or workplace consultant) you don't need to be an expert in workplace relations to add value for your clients – but you do need to be aware of the common issues and know where to find the right information.

This course will help you:

  • give clients the right advice on pay, record-keeping and other common workplace issues
  • locate free online resources for you and your clients
  • identify and discuss problems with clients
  • assist clients in responding to an audit or investigation
  • manage your own risk and liability.
