20 May 19 National Employment Standards
What are National Employment Standards (NES)?
Today I want to talk about the national employment standards.
These are 10 minimum standards that apply to all employees in the national workplace relations system.
The 10 standards are:
Maximum weekly hours
Cas – Requests for flexible working arrangements
Cas – Parental leave and related entitlements
Cas – Personal carers leave, compassionate leave and unpaid family and domestic violence leave
Cas – Community service leave
Cas – Long service leave
Notice of termination and redundancy pay
Cas – Fair work information statement
I will go through each of the national employment standards individually through the coming weeks.
