Industrial Law

Industrial law is often referred to as law of employment. Industrial law governs the relationship between the following: the worker (or employee) and persons conducting business or undertaking (PCBU), previously known as employers, the worker and trade unions or PCBU and trade unions.Industrial-Lawyers-Sydney

Employment law has in the past been regulated by federal and state laws and by awards which have been created under these laws. Industrial relations legislation is always changing and it is difficult for heads of companies and businesses to keep up to date. From the beginning of 2010, a new national system called Fair Work has been implemented, to balance the needs of workers and PCBU in Australia. The Fair Work is an independent body that deals with worker issues such as: protecting workers and outlining the minimum entitlements for workers under the National Employment Standards and Modern Awards.
