​​​​​​​​​​​Industrial relations

To understand your legal rights as an employee, view the Western Australia Industrial Relations Commission (WAIRC) Acts and Regulations​.

If you have an industrial relations issue, the WAIRC gives information on how to lodge an application or appeal.

There are also a number of registered organisations that can help you with your industrial relations questions or issues.

 

Employee rights

The Fair Work Ombudsman gives information and advice on Australia's workplace rights and responsibilities. 

Their website includes information on pay, awards, employment, leave, termination and complaints.

An award sets the minimum conditions – including pay –​ for employees who work in the same industries or occupations. To ensure you are being paid to industry standard, use the Ombudsman’s Award Finder.

You can also contact the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety Wageline service for information on State workforce law on ​1300 655 266.
