Episode 003: IR Simplified Podcast

In episode 03 of the IR Simplified podcast I talk about penalty rates, and whether we will see their demise at the end of the Fair Work Commission review. I also ask if an employer is really the ‘bad guy’ by wanting to reduce expenses.

There is also a little bit of a discussion around time sheets, inspired by a recent Pricing Power Podcast episode.
