Workplace Rights for Teens


This project aims to inform senior high school students about their rights, entitlements and responsibilities at work. The project was delivered by a solicitor from the Mackay Regional Community Legal Centre (MRCLC) at high schools in the Mackay, Whitsunday and Isaac Regional areas.

The students were informed about modern awards, the National Employment Standards (NES), the duties and obligations owed to an employer, pay, finishing up or termination of employment, unfair dismissal, harassment, discrimination, workplace bullying and where to get assistance.
