Legislative and regulatory frameworks

Now that we have examined some of the cultural influences that affect the Australian workplace, let’s turn our attention to the legislative and regulatory frameworks that are in place.

In addition to having an effect on the workplace culture, these frameworks ensure that your rights are protected and you are treated fairly throughout your WIL activity and whenever you are employed in an Australian workplace.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe the rights provided to workers in the Australian workplace
  • Explain how the Fair Work system provides protections in the Australian workplace
  • List the types of employment and discuss the rights and responsibilities associated with each
  • Explain the fundamentals of transitioning into an Australian workplace
