As of the 1st of December 2022, the Fair Job Code took effect. This Code added a requirement that all businesses that apply for government grants in Victoria, must hold a Pre-Assessment Certificate. This certificate confirms that the business has a history of complying with existing industrial relations and workplace health and safety laws.
The certificate can be applied for now using the following link. There is no need for a business to apply if they are already in the middle of an application. Businesses can apply so that they are ready for the future.
State and Federal Grants are an often overlooked source of funding to businesses and are a specialised field. Unlike the recent COVID grants, these grants are specialised and take time and effort to receive. We recommend businesses seek advice from experts in this field and Elysium has a relationship with one such provider.
If you would like more information about the certificate process or about grants in general, please do not hesitate to contact us.
