Why aren’t all companies making these same changes?

Companies can engage their workers as contractors or employees. If a company engages their workers as a contractor, they may be unaffected by this change in the SCHADs award.

For the disability sector, we believe treating workers as employees is a much safer option for those involved. By taking responsibility and treating our workers as our employees, it means that if something goes wrong, the person with disability isn’t going to get into trouble.

Hireup, another online company that treats their workers as employees, has more information on why this is important, and why it’s the right thing to do here: https://hireup.com.au/the-hireup-difference/
