Fair Work Act & Modern Awards

Fair work act 2009

The Fair Work Act 2009 (‘FW Act’) and the supplementary Fair Work Regulations 2009 were created to ensure there is a balanced framework for cooperative and productive workplace relations; one that promotes national economic prosperity and social inclusion for all Australians.

  • The FW Act and Regulations do this by providing workplace laws that:

    • are fair to working Australians

    • are flexible for business

    • promote productivity and economic growth for our future economic prosperity

    • take into account our international labour obligations

    • ensure a safety net that is fair and relevant

    • ensure workplace agreements that undermine the safety net can never again be a part of the national workplace relations system

    • help employees balance work and life commitments by offering flexible working arrangements

    • enable fairness at work and preventing discrimination in the workplace

    • achieve productivity and fairness by emphasising workplace-level collective bargaining between the employer and employees and their representatives.

National employment standards (NES)

The National Employment Standards (also known as the NES) cover everyone in the national workplace relations system. They started on 1 January 2010.

The National Employment Standards are 10 minimum conditions for employees. Together with the national minimum wage, they are a minimum safety net for employees. They include minimum entitlements for leave, public holidays, notice of termination and redundancy pay. An employee’s minimum entitlements can also come from a modern award or agreement.

Modern awards

Modern awards are those awards created under the national workplace relations system which relate to specific industries or occupations. Together with the National Employment Standards, they provide a fair and relevant minimum safety net of terms and conditions.

The first modern awards were created as part of an extensive review conducted by the Fair Work Commission's predecessor, the Australian Industrial Relations Commission. They came into effect on 1 January 2010.
