Laws that Safeguard Employees

Australia's workplace laws ensure all employees, including overseas students working part-time on a student visa, have certain protections. These include:

  • Receiving at least the minimum wage and superannuation access.

  • Protection against unfair dismissal.

  • Entitlements to leave, breaks, and rest periods.

  • A safe and healthy work environment.


Key Points for Employees in Australia

  • Tax File Number (TFN): Required for working in Australia. Apply through the Australian Taxation Office.

  • Superannuation: Employers must contribute to your superannuation fund if you're eligible. Temporary residents can claim a Departing Australia Superannuation Payment (DASP) upon leaving Australia, subject to certain conditions.

  • Workers' Compensation: Employers must have insurance to cover employees for injuries or illnesses sustained at work. This insurance can cover medical expenses and lost earnings until you can work again.
