Are Citation HR Software templates and employment documentation automatically updated?

Are the standard contracts and templates within Citation HR Software automatically updated?

Citation HR Software provides businesses with hundreds of employee, contractor and WHS employment documentation templates.  

Citation HR Software is backed by Citation Legal, Australia's leading specialist workplace relations law firm.  Citation Legal regularly reviews and updates the documentation to ensure that all Citation HR Software content is compliant and meets best practice standards at all times.

For example, when new legislation is passed, the Citation HR Software templates which Users rely on to generate their employment documentation are automatically updated to ensure compliance.


If I have a custom template or policy, will they be automatically updated with new legislation?

When new legislation is passed, the applicable content changes will only apply to documents which are generated via the Citation HR Software system from the date of the content update onwards.  Content changes will not automatically update documentation that has already been generated.

If a document is specific to your organisation or if a system generated document has been manually amended in Word or otherwise, it is the User's responsibility to keep that document up to date.   

Citation HR will be in touch to inform you of any changes to Australia's workplace laws via our alerts and newsletters.  If you have any questions relating to the changes in law and its impact on your business, we encourage you to seek advice from our Advice Line on 02 9083 0000 for Australia and + 64 2 7263 4918 for New Zealand.
