You will need to register a training contract if you intend to train and employ an apprentices or trainee.
During the period of a full-time or part-time apprenticeship or traineeship, as an employer you must release the apprentice or trainee to attend college, or be removed from routine work for training delivery and assessment, and pay them for this time.
You will need to contact the Fair Work Ombudsman about wages and employment conditions including wage rates, leave, and tool entitlements.
Apprentices and trainees are under probation for an initial period of their employment and training, during which time either party may terminate the apprenticeship or traineeship training contract for any reason within the applicable notice period.
As an employer you must lodge a training contract within 28 days after the day the apprenticeship or traineeship starts.
