Hiring a contractor – did you know?

​A trend that has emerged in the first part of this year has been many of our clients are looking to secure contract support for their teams.

Hiring contractor support to cover short-term projects or overflow work is not a new idea. There are many benefits to hiring contractors.

To read more on the benefits of hiring contractors read our article “Top 7 benefits of hiring a contractor” here.

We are having more conversations with our clients about contract support however it is important for clients to understand that there are always new updates to legal obligations, and these can change regularly.

At Ambition, we work closely with our solicitors to ensure we are up to date on the latest legislation and communicate that to our clients regularly.

Some of the most recent changes to legislation have been the introduction of paid family & domestic violence leave, job security and gender equality legislation and workplace conditions and protections legislation. This year we are also awaiting the upcoming changes for the closing of the loopholes bill.

With so many changes still to come in the current Australian government, it can feel like a minefield to navigate. Having a strong relationship with a recruitment partner that you can not only seek advice from but also have the confidence that they are working on these issues and communicate their findings with you, is essential.

Contract support can be a useful and stress-free way to fill gaps in your team, and with the support of the right recruiter, you can have the confidence that everything is taken care of for you.

If you are unsure of any of the topics discussed or require more information, please get in touch with your recruiter or your legal team.

This article is by no means legal advice, and this is not the full list of changes.
