The Australian Sign & Graphics Association has released a suite of updated resources for its members, as workplace changes brought by the new financial year come into play.

MIck Harrold: Start planning
New member resources absolutely necessary: Mick Harrold, president, Asga

They include up-to-date guidance on Awards Rates and worker definitions under the Fair Work Act.

The latest suite of exclusive member resources including legal documents and other resources have been uploaded to the Asga website, and can now be accessed through the association’s exclusive member area.

The new resources include:

* Employment Information Guide 2024-25 - a comprehensive guide to help sign and print businesses determine the right Award and employee classification level, and providing guidance on everything from wages, to leave allowances, bullying, terminations, and redundancies.

* Awards Rates - new rates for key Awards, applicable from 1 July.

* New legal documents including business checklists, business planning, contractors, employee letters, employee procedures, policies and WHS documents.

* New employment contracts and business templates for full time, part time and casual positions in admin, sales, graphic design, sign making and installing.  

* New Independent Contractor Assessment guide to help navigate the changes to definitions of employee, which were part of the recent Closing Loopholes amendments to the Fair Work Act.   

Asga president Mick Harrold said providing these resources is a “significant” investment for the association, but was “absolutely necessary” to help members save time, reduce risk, and build their business success.

He said, “These important resources allow members to go forward with confidence, as they employ new workers, manage workplace issues, and put policies and procedures in place for their business,” adding that the online resources are backed by the member-only advice hotline, which allows them free access to advice about legal or workplace issues.

“We’re excited to release these updated resources and would urge all our members to make use of the extensive online resources, as well as all of their other member benefits.”

Asga members can access the new resources by logging in to the exclusive member area at Those who are not yet members can find a comprehensive list of member benefits, and join up, at
