Incorporated associations, regardless of their size, need people to carry out the business and activities of the association. Those associations that have the funds often employ staff to undertake specific tasks, while others without the financial resources may have to rely entirely on volunteer workers. Many associations rely on both employees and volunteers.
When employing people, incorporated associations generally need to be aware of employment law and any relevant industrial agreement or instrument with which they are required to comply. This Section provides some general information on recruitment and appointment of employees, employment contracts and employment law.
