Hiring Kids for After School Jobs

Posted by on Nov 8, 2011 in Blog

Until recently it was hard for small businesses under the Retail Industry Award to hire under 18 yr olds for work after school unless they were able to offer minimum of 3 hour shifts.

FWA has now proposed to amend the Award to allow 90 minute shifts if an employee is a full time secondary school student and if the work offered is between 3pm and 6.30pm on a school day.
