National Employment Standards

National Employment Standards 150 150 MJT Law - Brisbane Employment Lawyers

Hi, welcome to tips Tuesday

My name is Melanie Thorley and I am the principle solicitor of MJT Law.

Today I want to talk about the national employment standards.

These are 10 minimum standards that apply to all employees in the national workplace relations system.

The 10 standards are:

  1. Maximum weekly hours
  2. Cas – Requests for flexible working arrangements
  3. Cas – Parental leave and related entitlements
  4. Annual leave
  5. Cas – Personal carers leave, compassionate leave and unpaid family and domestic violence leave
  6. Cas – Community service leave
  7. Cas – Long service leave
  8. Public holidays
  9. Notice of termination and redundancy pay
  10. Cas – Fair work information statement

I will go through each of the national employment standards individually through the coming weeks
