Free updates for 12 months – helping you stay compliant

The Cleardocs HR Manual is regularly maintained to ensure that it complies with all legislative changes.

When you purchase the HR policies and procedures from Cleardocs, you are entitled to all updates of the policies and procedures for 12 months. This means that if the law or best practice etc. changes, then you can download an updated version of the policies and procedures for free, to ensure that your business stays compliant.

When the policies and procedures change, we'll also email you draft explanations etc. that you can edit and send to your staff to inform them of the changes.

After 12 months, you can pay $99.00 to renew your subscription for another 12 months of updates.

If you don't renew, then you remain entitled to use the Manual you have already downloaded etc, but:

  • we won't automatically update it for you; and
  • you will no longer be able to download any more copies from Cleardocs.

Links to HR legislation

Many employees are now covered by the National Employment Standards (NES) so you need to know what they say.

Our Links page provides easy access:

  • to the standards; and
  • to the long service leave legislation in each state and territory.

Seek legal advice

The HR policies and procedures information here should be considered general in nature, and in no way interpreted as legal advice. You must always seek your own independent legal, accounting and financial advice about your particular situation. The summary on this page is for information purposes only.
