Failure to do so could result in the matter being referred to the Workplace Relations Commission, where an employer can be fined up to 4 weeks wages for not complying with this requirement.
The mini statement, as its name suggests, is a brief statement providing the employee with a minimum of information. An employer must still issue a Full Statement of Terms regardless, within two months of commencement, otherwise there is a breach of the Terms of Employment (Information) Act 1994.
To ensure employers fully comply with their legal obligations, the MSS HR Onboarding service will ensure that any person appointed to your company, will receive either a mini statement within five days or, their full statement of terms and conditions of employment either before they commence working with the company or within the statutory time limits.
We will ensure your Statement of Terms and Conditions of Employment is fully compliant with all the obligations under the Terms of Employment (Information) Act 1994 and all other employment legislation and, in addition, include the relevant sections necessary to ensure your employee is fully aware of their entitlements, their obligations and company policies and procedures applicable in your company, including a company handbook or other documents that you may wish to have issued at the commencement of employment.
We can also follow up, where necessary, to ensure the relevant documentation required by the company is received back.
