With the global job market in turmoil, there is an urgency to find a solution.
The Australian Government and industry groups are trying to find solutions, but a lot of work still needs to be done to create a robust and effective employment system.
The Federal Government and key stakeholders are currently engaging in a dialogue to address this and the Government’s National Jobs Guarantee (NLG) is an example of a potential solution.
As part of the NLG, companies can apply for a guarantee from the Federal Government to ensure that their staff are paid at least the national minimum wage of $15 an hour, plus any entitlements and bonuses provided by their employer.
In an industry that has a history of underpaying its staff, it is critical that the NLT be a part of this conversation.
This can be done through a number of options, including the National Minimum Wage Guarantee, a minimum wage guarantee for local governments, or the NLTT.
This article aims to provide a few tips for those looking to implement NLTTs into their business processes.
What is NLTT?
The NLTT is a voluntary, nationwide guarantee that all employees of a business are paid the national Minimum Wage (NLW).
For businesses that do not have a minimum workplace wage, NLTT offers employers a voluntary alternative that guarantees their employees the minimum wage for the duration of their employment.
The Government has set out a set of NLTT options for businesses to consider.
A NLTT can be set for a particular company, company sector, region or industry.
What types of businesses are eligible?
The Government’s NLTT policy applies to all businesses regardless of size and it applies to businesses operating in all industries in Australia.
What are the benefits of the policy?
The main benefits of NLT are that it helps businesses find the right staff for their jobs and ensures that they are paid their national minimum wages, or at least at a rate that is at least equal to the national wage rate.
For some businesses, the NLW can be sufficient to ensure a minimum of pay for their employees.
The NLT is also a win-win for all involved.
The employer gets the assurance that their workforce is paid at the national rate and the NLB does not pay them any of the entitlements or bonuses that they would otherwise receive.
This will ensure that the business is paying the national average wage, while not losing out on the benefits that the National Job Guarantee provides to workers in a particular industry.
In addition, it will also help to ensure the NLGT is consistent across the business and the workforce.
Where are the NLTs currently available?
The National Minimum Wages Guarantee is available in the ACT, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, Northern Territory, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.
The National Job Vacancies Guarantee has been introduced in Queensland, South Australian, South Western and Tasmania.
The NT NLT can be applied for in the NT and WA.
The Northern Territory NLT, which is available for businesses operating across the NT, is available only in the Northern Territories.
How does the NLtt work?
The Federal and State Government have both created a National Minimum Workplace Wage Guarantees (NLTGS) scheme.
The main objective of the Government NLTGS is to ensure companies get paid the minimum wages for their staff.
Employers are not required to meet a national minimum workplace wage if they are located in a small business.
However, if the business employs more than 50 people and their total workforce is below the national mean, the employer must pay the NLGW to all employees.
If the employer is located in the business sector, and the business’s total workforce does not exceed the national median, the Government has chosen to exempt certain businesses from the NLGL.
This means that small businesses can apply to the NLGB to be exempted from the Government LGL.
The government will then provide information to businesses on how to apply.
To qualify for the NLGC, a business must have: 100 or more employees at the time the NLGA is granted, and that the company is located: within an organisation that is eligible for the Federal NLGT or the State NLGT; or has 50 employees or fewer and that is not an organisation or sectorally-listed body within an enterprise.
Businesses are not eligible for a NLGT if they employ less than 100 employees.
What if I don’t have an NLGT?
In the past, the Federal government has offered a number, depending on the nature of the business.
For example, some small businesses may have one NLGT, while others may have two or three.
Other businesses may only have one.
However it is important to remember that it is not a guarantee that a business will receive a NLT.
The only guarantee that the employer will receive is that they will pay their NLGW.
This is an important requirement as businesses may not be able to get the NLSW
