What are the General Protections?

The Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) prohibits an employer from taking 'adverse action' against an employee (and in some cases independent contractors or prospective employees) for certain reasons.
 
In summary, these General Protections deal with:

  • workplace rights
  • industrial rights (including industrial activities and freedom of association)
  • protection from discrimination
  • protection from unlawful termination
  • protection from sham arrangements (relating to the engagement of independent contractors).
