Fair Work Act
The Fair Work Act governs all national system employers and employees, including the Commissioner for Public Employment and NTPS employees. It provides a legislative ‘safety net’ of entitlements through a system of modern awards and sets minimum employment conditions called the National Employment Standards (NES).
Other elements of the Fair Work Act relevant to the NTPS are:
- a system for making and approving enterprise agreements;
- the Fair Work Commission, a body which approves enterprise agreements/awards, hears applications for unfair dismissal and adverse action claims, and applications for transfer of business or dispute resolution; and
- the Fair Work Ombudsman, a body which promotes and monitors compliance with the Fair Work Act.
