Employment Law Fundamentals for Payroll Professionals

Payroll professionals provide pivotal support to their organisation through their knowledge of employee entitlements. There have been many changes to these entitlements in recent years and they are becoming increasingly complex. With this in mind, it is important to understand where employee entitlements come from and how to interpret these entitlements to apply them in a practical sense. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the course will also include important information in light of the Jobkeeper payments.
