Fixed-Term Contracts

Fixed term contracts are rare in Australia, but they are permitted and are restricted in duration to two years if permissible. Ending a fixed-term agreement before its expiration is considered a bread of the contract. It is more common to execute a "Maximum Term" agreement, where the arrangement expires at the end of the term but may be terminated by either party during the term. Maximum term agreements are also subject to statutory restrictions. 

Worker Classifications

There are no official subcategories of Workers. However, Workers may be engaged as "casual" meaning there is no commitment to provide work or a continued pattern of work. Casual Workers have different statutory entitlements.  test1234

Probationary Periods

Unless otherwise dictated by registered agreement or modern award, probationary periods are generally limited to six to twelve months.


In Australia, Workers recognize 7 national paid public holidays in addition to any holidays declared in the applicable state or territory. Workers’ entitlements on those days depend on the law of the state or territory as well as any applicable awards, enterprise agreements, and other registered agreements.

Most Workers receive four weeks of paid vacation per year accrued at a rate based on their ordinary hours of work. Vacation time is accrued per paycheck and if unused, rolls over year to year. Any accrued but unused leave must be paid at the time of termination. Workers may be due additional vacation entitlements based on any applicable awards, enterprise agreements, and other registered agreements.
