What is the Law Regarding Employment in Melbourne?

Employment law refers to the body of laws in Melbourne that regulate employees, employers, and independent contractors. Employment issues that are controlled by these laws include hiring policies, wage amounts, and termination procedures. A general understanding of Melbourne employment laws is required for both the employee and their employer.

"At-Will" vs. Contract Employment Terms

Occasionally an employment contract is used that sets a particular length of employment, but most of the times employment is considered to be on an "at-will" basis. In "at-will" employment, either the employer or the worker may terminate the job at any time, just as long as the reasons for doing so are not illegal. When the parties use an employment contract, the terms of employment will be controlled by their state and federal laws, as applied to people living in Melbourne.

Anti-Discrimination laws in Melbourne

Melbourne citizens must abide by laws which make discrimination illegal at all phases of employment, including hiring employees, wage disputes, and terminating procedures. People living in Melbourne must abide by laws stating it is illegal for employers to discriminate against people who belong to certain classes. These classes may be based on race, national origin, gender, religion, disability, and age.

Claims for employment discrimination may be filed with an administrative agency such as EEOC. Attorneys often specialize in employment discrimination.
