In the ever-changing HR compliance landscape in Australia, it has become increasingly important for businesses to adhere to the rules and regulations outlined by the Australian Government. The complexities surrounding HR compliance cause a unique set of challenges for businesses to navigate as employment laws, health and safety measurements and labour laws continue to develop. By outsourcing your HR compliance to our team of experts at E.L Blue, you can rest assured that your HR compliance checklist is looked after, meeting what is legally required so you can focus on growing your business.

What Does HR Compliance Mean?

HR Compliance encompasses all laws, regulations, and policies that are related to employment laws and employment practices within a business. It covers what an organisation is legally required to uphold such as adhering to labour laws, workplace health and safety, minimum wage standards, discrimination and harassment policies, employee benefits and record-keeping. This ensures organisations ethically and legally uphold HR standards as outlined by the Australian Government. As such, the consequences of not complying with these laws are considered a criminal offence on federal state and local levels.
