HR Advice Online Service
We help key advisors get plain-English answers to client’s HR and employment law questions, and access compliant HR tools for clients at special rates.
BetterHR Advice Online Service helps key advisors, such as payroll officers and bookkeepers, to avoid prosecution for accessorial liability if your company, employer or client breaches Australian employment laws.
Over 90% of all litigations commenced by the Fair Work Ombudsman last financial year sought orders against accessories.
Accessorial liability issues for individuals often arise in relation to breaches of the National Employment Standards, sham contracting, underpayments, adverse action and discrimination.
Even relatively minor actions can result in a person being held accessorily liable. For example, a failure to give written notice of dismissal before terminating a person from their employment would contravene the Fair Work Act. The employer and any person involved in the contravention could then face prosecution by the Fair Work Ombudsman.
If you fail to correctly explain the rules to your employer, make it clear when they are in danger of breaking them or become involved in breaches of the law yourself you risk being held personally liable under Section 550 of the Fair Work Act.
BetterHR Advice Online Service helps key advisors get answers to specific client HR and employment law questions via email. Such as:
- Employee Modern Award Coverage
- Pay Rates
- Long Service Leave
- Poor Work Conduct and Performance
Accessing the service is easy. Simply login to your Better HR and complete the relevant ADVICE form. One of our friendly team of HR and employment law experts will respond to your enquiry via email within two working days.

Scope of Service:
Our team is comprised of HR and employment law experts. We can answer questions relating to general human resources matters and employment laws such as the Fair Work Act 2009 and Fair Work Regulations 2009 (eg. National Employment Standards, Modern Awards, employment contracts, modern award interpretation and unfair dismissal).
We are unable to provide advice relating to superannuation, taxation, or salary sacrificing arrangements as these topics are not governed by employment law.
Importantly, Better HR is not a law firm and we do not provide legal advice. Better HR’s advisors are experienced and qualified HR and employment relations professionals. We speak in plain-English and provide subscribers with practical advice and support.
