New FairWork Statement to be Issued to New Employees

The National Employment Standards (NES) have been revised. Employers are now required to give every new employee a copy of the Fair Work Information Statement (FWIS) before, or as soon as possible after, they start their new job. The statement sets out details of the basic rights all employees receive as contained within the NES in particular.

Standards may vary for casual employees who must be provided with a Casual Employment Information Statement.

The new statements have been released in February 2023.

Note: State and territory laws may also apply to certain employees, and may be more beneficial than the NES. (Source: FairWork)
