WHAT to expect

Australia Employment Law

The 16.5 million Australian workers are protected by the Fair Work Act (2009). and the National Employment Standards. 

These pieces of legislation cover everything from terminations and severance pay through to working hours, holiday entitlement and rules around different contract types. 

There are heavy fines and potentially imprisonment where the relevant laws aren’t followed. Let Agility EOR take care of all compliance elements for you.

Payroll in Australia

Australia has no mandatory 13th month salary requirements, and employees can be paid in weekly, bi-weekly or monthly increments. 

On July 1, 2022, the federal minimum wage was set at $21.38 (AUD), or $812.60 (AUD) weekly for a standard workweek of 38 hours (before tax). 

The majority of workers in Australia are covered by a modern award. These specify the minimum salary and other working conditions applicable to employees in specific fields.

Working hours in Australia

According to the Fair Work Act of 2009, a worker can only put in a maximum of 38 hours per week, or 7.6 hours per day. A worker may be required to work overtime if the employer deems it necessary.

What is considered reasonable depends on several different factors. 

Modern awards include stipulations for overtime pay. Money is paid out according to specific fields of work or industries. Employees who are not covered by a modern award do not have a guaranteed entitlement to overtime pay, and their pay will depend on their individual contract.

Terminations in Australia

The termination of an employee in Australia is subject to strict requirements for procedural fairness and a sufficient reason. The number of employees that company has, their duration of service, and the nature of their jobs are all factors in determining the reasons for termination. 

Any employee who engages in legitimate “industrial activity” or exercises a “workplace right” is protected from retaliation by their employer. In addition to not being able to fire someone because of their race, gender, age, or disability, employees also can’t be let go for being sick or injured for fewer than three months in a given year. The appropriate government agencies and trade unions must be notified in the event of 15 or more collective redundancies.
