It is general information only and not intended to be a substitute for legal advice. By using the information on this page, you agree to our full disclaimer. There are two systems of employment law in Western Australia: a state system and a national system. While this information resource is suitable for both state system employees and national system employees, it will help you to know which system of employment law you are covered by. If you are unsure, please see our publication Q&A: State or national for WA employees. Quick Summary If you are an employee, there are certain conditions of employment that your employer must give you. These are considered an important “safety net” of conditions and they can’t be traded away. Even if you agree to a contract that removes these conditions, the contract will be invalid and the conditions will still apply. Minimum conditions include minimum wages, your hours of work, public holidays, types of leave, notice of termination and redundancy pay.
