Employers have to give every new employee a copy of the Fair Work Information Statement (the FWIS) before, or as soon as possible after, they start their new job.

Employers also have to give every new casual employee a copy of the Casual Employment Information Statement (the CEIS) at the same time.

The Fair Work Information Statement (FWIS)

The FWIS provides new employees with information about their conditions of employment.

You can download the Fair Work Information Statement .

The FWIS is also available in a number of different languages in our Language help section.

The FWIS has information on:

  • modern awards
  • making agreements under the Fair Work Act 2009
  • individual flexibility arrangements
  • freedom of association and workplace rights (general protections)
  • termination of employment
  • right of entry
  • the role of the Fair Work Ombudsman and the Fair Work Commission.

  • by mail
  • by email
  • by emailing a link to this page of our website
  • by emailing a link to a copy of the FWIS available on the employer’s intranet
