Everyone's rights at work
• Young Workers Centre
Information about your rights at work under the National Employment Standards.
The National Employment Standards (usually referred to as the NES) are a set of 10 minimum employment conditions that have to be provided to all part time and full time employees. Your Award or Agreement can’t contain clauses that reduce these standards. Casual workers are only entitled to some of the conditions in the NES – this why we encourage workers to demand part time or full time work where possible, and why we fight to ensure young workers have job security.
