- When employing people associations need to comply with employment laws and any relevant industrial agreements.
- If it is necessary to terminate an employee it must be done in accordance with the contract and fair procedures to ensure the termination is lawful.
- Incorporated associations must keep records relating to employment, including payment of wages, leave, tax records and superannuation records.
- Volunteers provide valuable contributions to the activities of an association.
