myfuture Work Rights and Responsibilities
Do you know what your work rights and responsibilities are? Over recent years there have been several changes to workplace laws with the introduction of the Fair Work Act and the abolishment of Work Choices.
As a member of the workforce you have the right to be paid at the appropriate level for your industry.
You can choose to be a member of a union and you can be entitled to a range of leave provisions.
So where do you begin to find out these facts, especially if this is your first job?
The Work Rights and Responsibilities page on myfuture is an excellent place to start. Here you will find useful information on where to find the following:
How much will I be paid?
What are my main working conditions?
What are my legal entitlements?
What do I need to know about equity and safety in the workplace?
Do I have to join a union?
Under what circumstances can my employment lawfully be terminated?
Doing a little research now could save you time and possible problems in the future:
