  • Easter Sunday trading;
  • Deduction clauses + deduction schedule;
  • Motor vehicle clause;
  • Smoke free environment;
  • Time & Hours of work clause group;

In addition to the legal changes, new functionality has been added to Schedule 1 (Personal Terms schedule).

There is now an interactive wizard to assist the user in customising the Personal Terms schedule based upon their clause selections and type of Agreement. On the schedules page of the Agreement creation section there is now a 'wizard' button next to schedule 1 which will pop-up the wizard and walk you through the options.
