    • The Employer Reminder alerts you to cashing out of annual leave terms which will be coming soon to a modern award near you;
    • It’s time to get quizzical with the quarterly quiz  - can you spot an employee from an independent contractor?  If so, a $50 David Jones voucher could be yours. Be quick!;
    • Did You Know? covers an interesting development in New South Wales where the Full Federal Court recently held that an employee receiving workers’ compensation was entitled to accrue annual leave and long service leave; and
    • The Legislation and Events Updates keep your finger on the pulse of incoming laws and upcoming events.
