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.
