An Overview of Employment Law
Employment law is the structure of regulations that govern the conduct of employers, employees, contractors, volunteers and other stakeholders in the workplace. The body of legislation that largely regulates employment law in Australia is the Fair Work Act 2009. Employment law is also regulated through other instruments including awards, registered agreements, and contracts of employment.
As an employer, it is important to be aware of legal obligations to ensure you protect the interests of the business and uphold the legal requirements set by the Fair Work Act and other sources of employment law.
