The Fair Work System overview

(note that this is not a change or update, but a useful reference for not for profit organisations on Employee entitlements and protections & Modern Awards and Enterprise Agreements)

The Fair Work system is the national system of workplace laws that establishes minimum terms and conditions of employment, sets out the rights of workers and the industrial relations obligations of most employers.

The Fair Work system applies to most not-for-profit (NFP) organisations and their employees in all states and territories with the exception of Western Australia. In Western Australia the Fair Work system only applies where the NFP is a constitutional corporation.

The Fair Work system comprises the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) and other federal ‘Fair Work’ legislation and regulations.
