The NEW MyCXC Contractor Portal

Launching soon!

Your contractor portal, MyCXC will soon look a little different. In the coming months we are replacing your current portal with the all ‘new look’ MyCXC upgrade. We’ve focused on ease-of-use, improved efficiency and exceptional user experience.

Here are a few of the new features you will benefit from:

– simplified timesheet management (for MyCXC timesheet users)
– auto-log query management
– automated on-boarding

The update of MyCXC will pose very minimal impact on you. Your pay will be processed as normal, you’ll just have a simplified, and better experience of your portal.

In the weeks to come, we will provide you with more information. So stay tuned!


Labour Day Public Holiday for WA and Vic

Did you know that Labour Day commemorates the eight hour day movement, which advocated eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest?

Labour Day is celebrated at different times across Australia because each state achieved the 8-hour day on different dates. In March, both Western Australia (6 March) and Victoria (13 March) celebrate Labour Day.

For contractors in WA and Vic, best that you check with your agency or client to see if timesheet deadlines or pay dates will change because of the public holiday in your state.

Pay runs will proceed as normal. So, if you are due to be paid on the public holiday, you can expect funds in your account as usual.

 We Call Bull! Busting 5 Myths About Contract Work

Contract work is a fast-growing, flexible, and demanding employment arrangement. However much it grows though, contract workers and freelancers still have an air of ‘mystery’ about them – mostly because a number of strange myths around contract work haven’t been dispelled yet.

In the spirit of creating a realistic approach to contract employment for workers looking to take the leap, we’ll be giving a no-bull breakdown of some common myths about working in the gig economy. It’s not all sunshine and roses, but it’s flexible, it’s challenging, and it’s worth considering.


Australia’s Shifting Workforce

Australia’s workforce looks a whole lot different today than it did five years ago. The rise of the contingent workforce and the ever growing gig economy has had a dramatic impact on the way, the how and the where we work.

A new report,  commissioned by insurance platform Trōv and conducted independently by YouGov, has revealed some surprising statistics on how Australians work and how our desire for flexibility in the workplace is changing our average workday.
