What Is the Purpose of Employment Legislation?
Employment legislation plays a crucial role in establishing a fair framework for employer-employee relationships, ensuring the respect of rights and the fulfilment of responsibilities. It promotes workplace health and safety, and the enforcement of necessary workplace laws.
With stakeholders properly registered under a national workplace relations system and with them adhering to employment contracts, employment legislation checks the consistency of guidelines put in place while addressing modern work requirements.
Community legal centres under the laws further support individuals in navigating these laws and defending their rights under the Fair Work Act.
