Both GASAA (Graphic Arts Services Association of Australia) and ASGA have issued reminders that unfair dismissal laws have changed from 1 July 2009.

The biggest change small businesses need to be aware of is the new definition of small business.

Small businesses come down from having 100 employees to 15 full time (equivalent) staff, so make sure you have your IR affairs in order now!
