Employment Law in New South Wales | Employment Lawyers NSW

The federal Industrial Relations system applies to employees of all private industry businesses in New South Wales. The main federal legislation that governs employment law in New South Wales is the Fair Work Act 2009 (FW Act).

This Act does not apply to employees of NSW government agencies; for example, the State public service or the local councils. They remain covered by the NSW Industrial Relations Act 1996 (IR Act).

There are, however, some aspects of employment law in New South Wales that are subject to other NSW laws, including the occupational health and safety laws, workers compensation laws and some laws that deal with specific leave provisions such as long service leave.
