For businesses, it is important to stay on top of these changes and make the necessary adjustments to ensure they are abiding by the law and being responsible employers.  

Changes that occurred in and around January 2020 that organisations need to be aware of include new guidelines for salary sacrificing super contributions, an exemption for high-income earners that allows them to opt-out of receiving super guarantee as so not to over-contribute, and the Fair Work Commission decision impacting public holiday arrangements coming into effect.
