Apprentice Rights & Obligations

The Fair Work Ombudsman has launched two new guides to assist local apprentices and their employers to understand their rights and obligations in the workplace. The guides – one for apprentices and one for employers – set out essential information about workplace rights and responsibilities including apprentice pay, rules around hiring apprentices and tips for resolving workplace issues. Fair Work Ombudsman Natalie James said that her agency wanted to ensure that the apprenticeship experience is a productive and positive one for both apprentices and those who hire them. It is important that employers seeking to take on an apprentice make sure they are aware of relevant laws and meet their obligations with regard to pay, entitlements and training. The results of the Fair Work Ombudsman’s National Apprenticeship Campaign, released in March this year, showed that one in three businesses audited failed to pay their apprentices correct wages.  They complement an existing range of tools and resources already available at www.fairwork.gov.au, including fact sheets, best practice guides and an online course about hiring staff, including young workers.
