Don’t slip up with new roster laws

Since the beginning of this year, there has been multiple changes to workplace laws that employers need to be wary of, one concerning roster changes. Some employers may be surprised to find that they now need to consult employees about changes to regular rosters and ordinary working hours.

Employers must consult an employee if they work a regular roster or have ordinary hours of work if they are considering making a change to an employees’ working hours. A regular roster refers to a regular and systematic work arrangement whether it be full-time, part-time or casual. Employers need to invite employees to give their views about how a change could impact them.

Employees must also be given the option to be represented in these consultations, either by an elected employee or a union representative.
