Employment law in Australia - an overview

01 December 2020

Despite the economic slowdown in Australia over the last few years, real GDP has grown by 3.1% year on year and is expected to remain stable at this mark for the remainder of 2016 and 2017.

Having narrowly avoided recession over recent years, it has remained a stable environment in which to do business.

This inbrief provides a snapshot of some of the key aspects of employment law in Australia. Our Hong Kong office was opened to meet a growing demand from many of our clients for coordinated employment and immigration/global mobility support across the Asia Pacific region (including Australia). This publication provides general guidance only: expert advice should be sought in relation to particular circumstances. Our Hong Kong office can source Australian advice through its links with local firms in Australia.
