Work Experience (Australia only)

Does work experience have to be paid?

Not necessarily. To quote the Fair Work Ombudsman. 

“Unpaid work can include work trials, volunteer work, work experience and internships. It also includes a vocational placement as defined under the Fair Work Act 2009. Unpaid work is lawful if it is a genuine work experience, vocational placement or volunteering arrangement.”

Work experience undertaken as part of College PLT is a vocational placement and as such can be unpaid.

The College does not recommend or endorse any positions, nor does it check the position for compliance with the Fair Work Act or any state award legislation or the Work Experience Rules. It is up to the student and the prospective supervisor to satisfy themselves in this regard.

Where can I find more information about the Work Experience component of Practical Legal Training program?
