As Australian businesses encourage workers to work remotely and we are all asked to limit travel and practice responsible social distancing, ACAPMA is converting the Salary Workshops planned for April in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane to an online platform.  Businesses are reminded that, despite the pressure of COVID-19, the requirements to understand and comply with the traditional and new salary prescriptions are still in place, and all businesses that pay anyone on a salary are strongly encouraged to take steps to understand the requirements and how they apply in their own business.

“The message I have to members is this; it is imperative that in the noise of the COVID-19 response, that the importance of getting salaries right is not forgotten.  These Workshops are coming at a time of extensive issues of misapplied salaries and resulting underpayments, and the release of detailed new salary requirements, and businesses need to understand these pressures now” explained ACAPMA Executive Manager for Employment and Training Elisha Radwanowski.

For more information on the pressures faced by businesses who are utilising salaries, including the changes that apply now to some salaried staff please see;

“While it is always beneficial to meet with members to go through their situation in detail face to face, the current health environment prevents us from doing that at this time.  But that doesn’t mean we can’t effectively share the information and explore members questions.  We are putting together an online delivery that will allow for the presentation and for detailed Q & A sessions, and are encouraging members from all over the country to book time to attend the online sessions” continued Elisha.

The Workshops and Q & A sessions will be held as planned on 7/4/2020, 8/4/2020 and 16/4/2020.

Members who have registered to attend one of the Workshops will be contacted directly with the details of the online meeting.

Members who are interested in registering to attend the Online Workshop should email employment@acapma.com.au to register now.
