Employment Law in the Northern Territory

The national Fair Work workplace relations system in Australia commenced on 1 July 2009. It is administered by two bodies: the Fair Work Commission and the Fair Work Ombudsman. The main piece of legislation is the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth).

In the Northern Territory, all employees are covered by the national workplace relations system. This differs from most of the States, where only private sector employees are covered by the national system. However, it is similar to Victoria and the ACT, where all employees are covered by the national system.
