Legal and compliance

Our employment contracts are approved by legal professionals. To ensure that you remain legally compliant, we recommend that clients use our easy to use copyrighted self-population questionnaire that pre-populates current HR contracts that are legally compliant. This way when there is an update to a contract because of a change to HR legislation clients can remain HR compliant with our simple acceptance system. If you update your information by using the edit company tab in the Happy HR Admin document dashboard they will also remain legally compliant. Our contracts are compliant to Australian Commonwealth standards. You may make alterations to the documents but these will no longer carry the assurance of Happy HR PTY LTD. Happy HR can organise for a legal professional to review your amendments. There is a small but reasonable fee to review your altered policies to give you piece of mind. Remember it is your obligation to run your company according to the contracts should you accept them.

Upset or vexatious employees will sometimes bring different legal proceedings against an organisation. While the use of Happy HR’s documents and performance management procedures may assist in defending such proceedings, these cases will be decided based on individual case facts. In these circumstances Happy HR PTY LTD makes no representation or offers a guarantee that use of the polices and guidelines will provide a defence to such proceedings should a person or organisation behave outside of Fair Work and Commonwealth guidelines.
