Whats New

Workforce Guardian is regularly updated to ensure subscribers always have access to fully compliant HR tools and resources, as well as up to date information about Australian employment laws in plain English. Recent additions include:

New or Improved Features

New Compliance Register

Workforce Guardian now includes a Compliance Register to help you achieve HR best-practice and compliance with Australian employment laws such as the Fair Work Act 2009.

The 'Risk Meter' on your Dashboard displays a summary of 'HR Best-Practice & Compliance' across your whole business. The lower your rating the lower your risk of fines, penalties and employee claims.

Each Personnel File also includes a 'Compiance Scorecard'. Green shows that you have completed the relevant task. Red shows that the task has not been completed. The more red you see on the scorecard the higher your risk of fines, penalties and employee claims.

New Dashboard People Search

Now you can find personnel files faster with our new dashboard people search.

The dynamic search filters people as you enter text. To make it quick and simple to find the personnel file you need.

New Payroll Forms:

  • Payroll Deductions Authority Form
  • Repayment of Overpayment Agreement

Major Content Upgrade

The latest major upgrade to our cloud HR systems includes:

  • twenty-four (24) updated HR processes and
  • eight (8) new HR processes

to help our subscribers. All at no additional cost.

Each with a new interactive flowchart that provides a step by step guide to help you achieve HR best-practice and full-compliance with Australian employment laws.

Subscribers now have access to more  essential HR tools and resources at a fraction of the cost of developing and keeping everything up to date and compliant themselves.
