New helpline for small businesses

THE Federal Coalition Government and the Fair Work Ombudsman have launched a new phone helpline for small businesses in Australia.

Federal Member for Murray Dr Sharman Stone said small business owners could phone the helpline on 13 13 94.

“The Helpline will provide assistance to employers on Fair Work matters and it should help to bring back confidence within the sector," Dr Stone said.

"The helpline is part of the Government’s election promise to assist with employment, growth and innovation.

“The helpline will reduce waiting times for people in small business who need advice about employment matters, and will help increase knowledge about fair work laws."

People can phone the helpline on 13 13 94 between 8am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday. For more information visit
