International students are, understandably, not always across a new country’s work practices. Or, their rights in the workplace.
Employment law and what’s the norm in the workplace can differ from country to country. International students will – quite possibly – find out the hourly rate of pay when they arrive in Australia, but perhaps not much beyond that! That’s where the Fair Work Ombudsman comes in. They’re a great Australian resource.
The Fair Work Ombudsman will be running an online webinar specifically for international students next week. This webinar will cover what the FWO are all about, and include info on basic workplace rights and what, as an employee in Australia, you are entitled to. They’ll cover work experience and unpaid work – what goes and what doesn’t. You’ll also get to see all the useful tools and resources they have to offer.
So, when and how?
