Apprentice electricians in a workshop working with handsaws

The Fair Work Ombudsman has launched two guides to help apprentices and their employers to understand their rights and obligations. The guides – one for apprentices and one for employers – set out essential information about workplace rights and responsibilities including apprentice pay, rules around hiring apprentices and tips for resolving workplace issues.

The guides complement an existing range of tools and resources already available on the Fair Work website, including fact sheets, best practice guides and an online course about hiring staff, including young workers.
