Do my employer obligations still apply to my online business?
Yes, no matter where you conduct business, you are still required to comply with your employer obligations. This includes ensuring your employees are paid according to the National Employment Standards (or their relevant award), ensuring the workplace is safe for employees and informing them of their leave entitlements.
As an online business, your employees may work remotely. In such a case, you are still required to take measures to ensure their working space is adequate and safe. This can take the form of regular meetings (via Zoom) or providing an allowance for WFH equipment.
