Federal Employment & Industrial Relations Law (most workers in Australia)

The Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) generally applies to national system employers and their employees in Australia. In South Australia this is all employees apart from state public servants and local government employees. However there are a few provisions of the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) which cover all employees in Australia.

The Fair Work Commission and the Fair Work Ombudsmanmanage the national system.
