Contract Wizard Updates

Workforce Guardian has updated our contract wizard to reflect recent law changes/interpretations:

1. Award-Free Contract:

We have updated the logic in 'Step 6b Leave Page' of our contract wizard to reflect a recent ruling by the Australian Taxation Office regarding Superannuation on Annual Leave Loading

2. Part-Time Award-Free Contract:

We have updated the logic in 'Step 7a Leave Page' of our contract wizard to improve the wording when employers want to provide extra paid annual leave.

We've also upgraded our backend systems to improve functions such as user management.

We've already commenced working on our next upgrade which includes an exciting new 'Wizard' to help you better manage a common HR function that employers often struggle with. I'm sure you'll love it. Our aim is to have this live for you by early to mid-May. We'll release more news soon.
