What is workplace relations law?

Workplace relations law is an umbrella term that refers to working relationships in a workplace, not just the relationship between employer and employee.

An organisation’s relationships with independent contractors, sub-contractors and even volunteers may be regulated by workplace relations laws, depending on the situation. It’s crucial that the relationship between organisations and their workers is robust and that work terms and conditions are clear and enforceable.

That’s why Australia has workplace laws that regulate employment relations.
