Job Descriptions Builder

In addition to the database of Job Descriptions there is now also a template builder to assist the user in building their own. The builder provides a structured framework guiding the user through the common elements to a job description and stores your documents for use with your Agreements or you can download to MS Word®.

New and updated Letters

Letters of offer and confirmation of employment now have options for conditional offers, ie. to make offers of employment based upon a candidate attaining/acheiving certain criteria. There is also a new Industry Training Bond as well as a standard training bond agreement to be used if the Employer wishes to bond an Employee to re-payments if they resign after the company pays for certain industry training or qualifications.

Also it is important that job candidates complete some sort of pre-employment questionnaire. If something transpires later in the employment relationship which they failed to disclose earlier, you need to be able to prove it was asked. Included in the latest version is out recommended Pre-Employment Questionnaire.
