Job Descriptions Builder

In addition to the database of Job Descriptions there is now also a template builder to assist the user in building their own. The builder provides a structured framework guiding the user through the common elements to a job description and stores your documents for use with your Agreements or you can download to MS Word®.

New and updated Letters

Letters of offer and confirmation of employment now have options for conditional offers, ie. to make offers of employment based upon a candidate attaining/acheiving certain criteria. There is also a new Industry Training Bond as well as a standard training bond agreement to be used if the Employer wishes to bond an Employee to re-payments if they resign after the company pays for certain industry training or qualifications.
