Fair Work system

The Fair Work system is the national framework established by the Fair Work Act 2009. It sets minimum employment standards and regulates various employment and industrial matters across Australia.

This system provides a foundational structure for employment in Australia, establishing minimum standards for pay, hours, leave, and other working conditions. It also includes mechanisms for resolving industrial disputes, handling unfair dismissal claims, and regulating union and employer activities. It's essentially the rulebook for fair and legal employment practices in Australia.
