Employment Law in Queensland | Employment Lawyers QLD

With respect to employment law in Queensland, most Queensland employees will be covered by the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) (FWA). The FWA applies to people who are employed by a ‘national systems employer’, which includes a ‘constitutional corporation’ and the Commonwealth insofar as it employs people. Shortly after the FWA was introduced, the Queensland government enacted legislation referring much of its powers to the Commonwealth and expanding the definition of ‘national systems employee’. 

The combined effect of these Acts on employment law in Queensland is that now almost all employees in Queensland, with the exception of employees who are employed by the Queensland government, will be covered by the FWA.
