Pride Month 2024: Three ways you can help staff be themselves

We’re revealing three key ideas to help you create an inclusive workplace where all your employees can flourish as their authentic selves.


Q. Do I legally need to pay my staff overtime or can I give them time off in lieu?

Most employees need to be paid for their overtime hours. However, some awards and enterprise agreements do provide for time off in lieu instead of direct payment for extra hours worked. You just need to make sure that you’re following the law when you’re making a call about your overtime rewards.

Be confident you’re doing the right thing for your employees and the law by getting in touch with our team of employment relations advisers on BrightAdvice. They’re available 24/7 to answer all your urgent questions.

Q. Do I need to pay my employees extra for their overtime hours?

Q. Do I need to pay overtime hours if my staff work over 38 hours a week?

Q. Can I purchase BrightHR’s Overtime Tracker on its own?
