Are you a student studying in Australia and have a casual or part time job?

Things You Need To Know

  • It is illegal for an employer to treat you any differently to other workers based on your gender, religion or nationality
  • You may be entitled to penalty rates for working at night, on the weekend or on public holidays
  • Your employer cannot fire you if you are away from work temporarily due to illness

If you are having troubles with any of the above, the Fair Work Ombudsman provides a free service to all people working in Australia. They have a range of information available on their website to help you understand your rights at work.
