Your Rights - Fact Sheets
In Australia there are minimum conditions of employment called the National Employment Standards (NES). Every employee must receive these minimum standards. Industry awards, enterprise agreements and common law contracts also form legally enforceable terms and conditions of employment over and above the NES minimums. It's important you understand each of these and how they interact to create your individual terms of employment.
The following fact sheets provide an overview of what your rights and obligations at work are, and how the law protects your legal minimum terms and conditions.
