- What We Do
Our unique Telephone Information Service (TIS) is a free and confidential service that assists over 16,000 Victorian, Queensland and Tasmanian workers every year with their rights at work. Find out more and call us today.
We publish a range of legal education fact sheets for workers experiencing issues at work. Learn more about employment contracts, casual employment, unfair dismissal, discrimination and more.
In response to the unprecedented demand on the JobWatch Telephone Information Service because of the COVID–19 pandemic, JobWatch has released a series of Q&As responding to the most common questions.
If you’ve experienced sexual harassment or discrimination in the workplace, we are here to help. We can assist through providing legal information and once-off advice, through to ongoing representation.
Employment is extremely important for financial security, independence and self-esteem for people experiencing family violence (FV). We assist Victorian workers where their work has been impacted by FV.
We know that it can be difficult to find time to call during the day, which is why our Telephone Information Service is open late on Wednesday nights until 8.30pm - supporting more people, at a time that suits them.
