Constructive Legal Solutions is situated in Melbourne, and is backed by NECA [Victoria]. NECA is an organisation which began in Melbourne in 1916, having strong roots dealing with wages, conditions and industrial action.
Over the years, the employment and commercial landscape has evolved and with that, comes the challenge of legal complexity. To meet this challenge, specifically for electrotechnology, construction and trades, Constructive Legal Solutions was launched.
JobKeeper has been useful to your business, helping to tide your company over through the lull caused by the pandemic. It has allowed you to retain your employees and operate without any drastic changes to your operations and your staff. But what will you do now that the Scheme is coming to an end on the 28th of March 2021?
You have a good relationship with your customers, with some of them having used your services for years now. You don’t have any terms and conditions in place for these transactions, as you operate on the basis of trust – trust that your customers will pay you for your goods and services, trust that they would make payment on time and trust that they would not do anything that may jeopardize your business.
All businesses are based around contracts and the electrotechnology and broader construction industry is no different. From employment contracts, to purchase order terms and conditions, subcontractor agreements and service agreements, to name a few.
In the electrotechnology and broader construction industry, it is very likely that companies have a mix of employees and independent contractors (contractors) working for them. There are advantages and disadvantages to both.
