Work Issues

There are minimum levels of pay and conditions of employment professionals are entitled to receive by law. We're here to ensure you are aware of these and that your employment conforms to these minimums. 

These fact sheets cover the basic sources of your employment terms and conditions.  We explain the fundamentals of the National Employment Standards (NES), modern awards, Enterprise Bargaining Agreements (EBA's) and individual employment contracts and how they work to form the minimum pay and conditions professionals are entitled to by law.

If you have any questions regarding the application of these basics to your specific situation we recommend you contact our Workplace Advice and Support experts for a confidential discussion.
