Why does your business need a Full-Time Employment Agreement?
If your business engages employees on a permanent contract with a set minimum number of hours per week, then these employees are considered full-time employees.
Under the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth), full-time employees are entitled to:
- Paid leave
Including annual leave, sick leave, and carers leave.
- Written notice
Also known as payment instead of notice. This applies if the employer terminates the employee’s employment.
- Paid Public Holidays
Typically, full-time employees receive a paid day off on public holidays, however, as an employer you may request that your full-time employee work on a public holiday. Some full-time employees will fall under award rates, however, this differs for each industry so it is best to get the most recent information on your specific industry award from the Fair Work website [attach hyperlink https://www.fairwork.gov.au/awards-and-agreements/awards/list-of-awards].
A full-time employee is entitled to convert to a part-time or casual employee if both the employer and the employee agree and notice or payment is given to the employee. If a full-time employee does not agree to the change, an employer may still be able to change the full-time employee to a part-time or casual employee if the agreement allows for it by providing notice or paying all outstanding payments to the employee.
