Workshop 2, Know Your rights to work in Australia:

Are you currently working or looking for a job in Australia? Then it’s important you know your rights at work in Australia.

The Fair Work Ombudsman’s workshop will talk about the role of the Fair Work Ombudsman and your rights at work in Australia, such as the minimum wage and the differences between fulltime, part time and casual employment. It will also discuss the new referral protocol that it has with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and how this can help you. It will cover information about their free services, including their Record My Hours app, their Infoline, in-language material and web-based tools and resources. Finally, it will look at the common issues to watch out for in the workplace and give you some handy tips to remember when you get a job.
