What are the employment laws in Australia?
Australian employment is primarily governed by the Fair Work Act 2009. This encompasses rights and responsibilities for employers and employees, covering wages, leave, termination, and workplace conditions. The National Employment Standards (NES) detail minimum standards for employment. Additionally, Modern Awards and Enterprise Agreements can dictate specific terms for industries or workplaces. The Fair Work Ombudsman and Fair Work Commission play crucial roles in oversight and dispute resolution. Regular consultations with employment law professionals ensure understanding and compliance.
