The National Employment Standards are 10 minimum conditions for employees. Together with the national minimum wage, they are a minimum safety net for employees.
They include minimum entitlements for leave, public holidays, notice of termination and redundancy pay.
An employee’s minimum entitlements can also come from a modern award or agreement. For more information go to Fair Work Ombudsman.
The National Employment Standards (NES) set out minimum conditions of employment. You can find details of how the standards apply in the fact sheets here.
