Industrial Relations

Under the provisions of the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) Australian workers are allowed to engage in or have an association with lawful industrial activities. Furthermore, the Act also provides that adverse action against a person is not allowed if the employee is, or alternatively is not, a member of an industrial association, or an employee engages, or does not engage, in an industrial activity are just some of the protections in place. If you feel that an adverse action has been taken against you due to a matter involving industrial activities, please seek the assistance of a lawyer via FindLaw who will be able to help with your particular matter.
