In Australia, employers and employees within the national workplace relations system are covered by the National Employment Standards (NES) contained in the Fair Work Act 2009. Together with pay rates in modern awards and minimum wage orders, the NES provides the minimum legal conditions for national workplace relations system employees.

Ensuring your business is complaint with these minimum legal obligations is critical, with significant penalties for employers and individuals where minimum obligations have been breached.
