Do I Have to Pay My Interns

By Julian Parsons - Sydney

Do you have to pay your interns?

The short answer is yes and no.

Under Australian law, you must financially compensate anyone who comes to your workplace to contribute through ‘productive work’.

However, there are perfectly legal ways to bring on unpaid interns in a meaningful capacity that supports the goals of both employee and employer.

When Will the Government Listen

Call this drought what it is - a Natural Disaster

This drought is breaking records, pushing families and communities to the brink − and it’s getting worse.

Across NSW, it’s drier than many have seen in their lifetimes. Farms that have never in their hundred-plus year history destocked, have sold all their livestock.

Farmers that had enough hay in storage for years of drought have used their last bale.

Farmers that have never complained, have gotten on with the job, have put food on tables across the world − are asking for assistance.

Gloucester's Lyn Stewart to launch her self-published book at Gloucester Bookshop

From the Gloucester Advocate story by Anne Keen

Gloucester's Lyn Stewart had a niggling interest in researching her family history.

Like many Australians, her family tree has a range of convicted criminals, which was partly what first piqued her interest. But it was chasing down that tale of her great great grandmother, Margaret Murphy which inspired her to write a book.

 

She started researching her relative by first acquiring Margaret's death certificate as it provided details of her date of death, the date and location of her birth, and the names of her parents.

GRDC Dealing with the Dry Info Session Wednesday 24 July at Rowena

Firsthand experience of drought and an understanding of the toll it can take on farming businesses, bank
balances and emotional well-being was the catalyst for a series of Dealing with the Dry: Farm management
options during and after drought forums being run across northern New South Wales next month.
Initiated by Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Grower Relations Manager Susan
McDonnell, the forums aim to deliver practical advice ranging from how to talk about debt with your bank
manager, to accessing government services and identifying and supporting mental health issues.
A grain grower herself, Mrs McDonnell said the GRDC Dealing with the Dry forums would be run in small
communities across NSW and were focused on delivering genuinely helpful information directly to those in
need.
“Unfortunately, like many people involved in rural industries, I know only too well the impact of drought. It can
be extremely demoralising and leave you wondering how you will get through both from a financial and
psychological perspective,” she said.

'You never forget:' Mother's pain as $1m reward offered in Penny Hill murder probe

Twenty-eight years since her daughter was found slumped against a farm gate along a NSW country road, Jeanette Hill says she still holds hope of finding out who was responsible for her daughter's death and bringing them to justice.

Penny Hill was 20 when she moved from Narrabri, in the state's north-west, to the small Central West town of Coolah in July 1991.

AGL says Narrabri coal seam gas project won't ease pressure on prices

A senior executive at energy giant AGL says coal seam gas projects including the contentious Santos-led Narrabri development will do little to ease power prices but cautioned politicians that misguided regulations could have unintended consequences by choking off new supply.

Richard Wrightson, AGL's head of wholesale markets, told The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age that moves by political parties to pressure governments to act on energy prices could backfire by discouraging exploration and production.
