New obligations under annualised salary changes

By Tasha Levy|27 February 2020

According to Amber Sharp, partner at Bartier Perry, the new annualised salary provisions coming into effect on 1 March are “retrograde”.

Ms Sharp joins host Jerome Doraisamy on this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show to explain how an annualised salary currently functions, the new administrative obligations placed on employers and employees under the clause amendments, and the key driver for these updated requirements.

She shares her views on why these changes will be detrimental for businesses of all sizes, how law firms will manage this implementation, and why the system does not need to be applied to employers at large.
