Minimum wage and deductions from wages
Minimum pay rates are set in an award, enterprise agreement or other registered agreement or by the national minimum wage.
Employers are usually prohibited from deducting money from an employee’s pay without their consent.
The Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) provides information about the obligations of employers regarding payment of workers including minimum wages, pay slip and record-keeping requirements and when employers can make deductions. The FWO's pay calculator can be used to work out pay rates, penalties and allowances.
Your employer has a legal responsibility for your health and safety at work. You should receive health and safety information, training and personal protective equipment (if required), free of charge.
Awards, enterprise agreements and other registered agreements prescribe maximum hours of work rest breaks, overtime and rostered days off. Find out how these apply in your Award or Agreement on the Fair Work Ombudsman website.
Unions provide support and advice to employees to help them better understand their rights and obligations in the workplace. Unions are registered under State and Commonwealth laws as industrial organisations of employees.
Employers cannot dismiss, threaten dismissal or discriminate against an employee due to their membership or non-membership of a union.
A number of other organisations can also give labour hire workers advice about rights and entitlements and provide other assistance.
