What staffing options are available to businesses as an alternative to taking on a full or part-time employee? Is it possible to ‘test the waters’?

Bartlett Law is holding a free employment law seminar aimed at small to medium businesses. It will take about an hour and be followed by time for questions.

The seminar will cover:

  • Offers of employment – when is an offer of employment accepted? What happens if the agreement is not recorded in writing?
  • Casual employees – what is a casual employee? What is the distinction between a casual employee and a part time employee?
  • Fixed term employees – what is a fixed term employee? When are fixed terms available to employers? What are the formalities required?
  • Trial periods – what is the effect of a trial period? How long can a trial period be for? What are the formalities required to invoke a trial period?
  • Independent contractors – what is the difference between a contractor and employee? What are an employer’s obligations to a contractor? What happens if there is a dispute about status?
