Why work in
Grow your team in
As you build your team, hiring the right people for the right roles at the right time is crucial. In Australia, employers need local setup and resources for compliance, payroll, taxes, and benefits – it's quite complex.
With Gloroots' global Employer of Record (EoR) service, you can offload tasks like payroll, tax, benefits, and compliance. This way, you can focus on what truly counts: your employees and growing your business.
Risks of misclassification
"Misclassification of employees" means wrongly categorizing workers by employers. It's when they treat someone as a contractor, skipping laws and benefits they should get as employees. Using Gloroots' PEO/EOR in Australia lowers misclassification risks. They handle rules, proper categorization, correct payroll, and full benefits. You focus on your main work while experts manage employment stuff.
In 2017, Australia launched a new foreign policy to strengthen its economy, security, and international relations. This helped Australia consistently rank 14th in the ease of doing business index. Corporate tax rates are 20%-30%.
Australia's stable political and social conditions have led to a GDP of $1.5 trillion and steady 3.3% growth. Australians have good disposable income and spending habits, which businesses can tap into.
Setting up in Australia is practical. While the government makes starting and growing a business easy, challenges like compliance, labor laws, and payrolling exist.
When hiring in Australia, consider Gloroots. We handle complexities like local entity setup and compliance. For example, employment contracts must include a whistleblower policy. With us, you focus on growth while we handle employment intricacies.
Legal aspects of employing in
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
In Australia, there is a clear distinction in legislation between fixed-term employment contracts and permanent employment contracts. While not mandatory by law, it is considered best practice to establish a written employment contract that delineates the fundamental terms of employment. These terms typically include:
1. Identification of both the employer and employee.
2. Commencement date of employment (and duration for temporary contracts).
3. Description of the workplace.
4. Specification of the position, including duties and responsibilities.
5. Outline of the base salary and any additional compensation and benefits.
6. Clarification of the working hours.
7. Determination of the total number of holidays and leave entitlements.
8. Indication of the notice periods required for employment termination.
9. Mention of any probationary period if applicable.
10. Reference to relevant industry awards or agreements.
By documenting these essential details in an employment contract, both employers and employees can have a clear understanding of their rights and obligations, fostering transparency and minimizing potential disputes.
It's important for employers to understand the intricacies of these programs before making a hire. This might sound overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be. A solution like Gloroots eliminates the barriers for you. With Gloroots' Employer of Record offering, hiring and managing employees globally is a piece of cake.

In accordance with the 2009 Fair Work Act, employers have the right to ask their employees to work a "reasonable" amount of overtime without being obligated to provide compensation. However, specific industrial awards may impose the requirement of overtime payment when an employee exceeds 38 hours of work in a single week. These awards typically set the guidelines for overtime pay, ensuring that employees are fairly remunerated for their additional work hours.
As of July 1, 2022, Australia's minimum wage is set at AUD 21.38 per hour or AUD 812.60 per week, based on a standard 38-hour workweek.
In Australia, all employees are granted ten days of combined sick and carer's leave annually, which can be utilized for personal illness or to attend to childcare and family emergencies. Throughout this period, employees are entitled to their regular wages.
Tax and Social Security contribution:
Termination of an employee in Australia requires written notice from the employer, who may opt to allow the employee to work during the notice period or provide payment instead. Notice periods and severance pay can be subject to negotiation through employment agreements.
Severance pay in Australia depends on the length of the employee's service. Employees with less than one year of service are not eligible for severance pay.
Severance pay is reduced to twelve weeks for employees with at least ten years of continuous service, based on a 2004 Redundancy Case decision by the national Australian Industrial Relations Commission.
The duration of the notice period for employee termination in Australia is contingent upon the employee's tenure within the company.
The probation period's length, which occurs at the beginning of employment, is determined by the employer and typically lasts between three and six months in Australia.
Minimum Employment Period
As per the Australian Fair Work Act, employees must complete a Minimum Employment Period before having access to an unfair dismissal claim in case of termination. This period is six months for companies with more than 15 employees and 12 months for small businesses with fewer than 15 employees.
