Now, no-one wants to spend money on expensive lawyers. And, we think we can provide a better ‘base precedent’ without costing an arm and a leg. So we’ve drafted this employment agreement template (in PDF and Word formats), specifically for use when employing Allied Health Assistants to work in Australian speech pathology private practices on a casual basis.
We’ve designed the template to be consistent with:
- Fair Work Australia template contracts;
- the Health Professionals and Support Services Award 2020 (MA000027); and
- the National Employment Standards in the Fair Work Act (Cth) 2009; and
- the Delegation of Tasks to Speech Pathology Support Personnel in Speech Pathology Australia’s ‘Parameters of Practise: Guidelines for Delegation, Collaboration and Teamwork in Speech Pathology Practice’ (2016).
The template has been updated so it incorporates increases to the Award as a result of the Fair Work Commission’s Annual Wage Review 2022-2023 Decision, that took effect from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2023.
As always, we recommend you seek legal advice about areas of concern – e.g. clauses specific to your business needs.
