Firstly to access the manual, navigate to the EmployWise section by clicking the tab on the grey navigation bar under the BusinessWise logo. Once in the EmployWise section, the menu bar gives you access to all of the EmployWise tools quickly and easily. This menu bar is organised into three sections: Employees; Advice and Documents. The Employment Reference Manual option can be located in the Documents section on the right-hand side of this menu. The Manual is grouped into sections or chapters covering all of employment law legislation. To open a chapter, simply click on the purple book icon to expand into sub-chapters and, once you have located the page you are interested in, click on the link and the information is displayed on-screen. Here you can also ‘Bookmark’ the page or print a copy if needed. To navigate further within the Employment Reference Manual simply click on the Options bar.
So how does this help keep you informed of any upcoming changes? When there is an update to the Employment Reference Manual you will see a News Item down the left-hand side of the BusinessWise Home Page, this information will also be sent to the Messages section of your BusinessWise account. Alongside this you can also have the details sent to your own email inbox, by simply navigating to the My Account section and setting up email alerts, ensuring that changes to employment law will never pass you by.
