During the current times, it is important to have as many staff working from home as possible, however; it is also important to ensure you have an appropriate policy in place and a checklist to minimise your WHS and workers compensation risks.

About this health check
Not everything throughout this health check will be relevant to your business, for example; you may not have casual employees. However, this comprehensive health check is designed (like everything we do) to bring big business thinking into small business practice.
Before you switch off and start ranting big business thinking isn’t relevant to my café, or plumbing business, or manufacturing business; be comfortable in the knowledge you’re wrong! Not quite the touch-feely sort of thing you were expecting to read was it?
SBAAS gets results because we bring this thinking to our clients organisations, just scaled appropriately when and where necessary, but everything in this health check is relevant to every organisation, regardless of its size.Small Business Health Check

If your organisation deals with contractors or does joint venture type work with other organisations, it is important to have a confidentiality agreement to protect your interests.

 

Our basic confidentiality agreement will assist in these circumstances.

Although not a legal requirement in Australia, having an Employee Handbook ensures that employees are given clear advice on the employer’s policies, procedures and expectations, and helps the employer build a consistent culture of transparency.

When businesses hire their first team members, they often start without having considered all of the implications, which means they don’t have an employee manual in place. But, your new employee is going to be representing you and your company to your customers and clients. They will be at your premises and will gain access to all of your knowledge and resources.

Many people find that what starts out with great promise ends up in disaster when they haven’t considered all of the potential scenarios.

This is a templated version which shall require editing to suit your organisation.
