New self-assessment tool to help young people improve working conditions
The Fair Work Convention has launched a new toolkit which can be used by young people to determine how their working conditions stack up against a national standard.
The Fair Work Self-Assessment tool enables workers to assess their own individual experience of fair work and suggest actions they and their employer can take to improve on it.
The toolkit measures how an individual's experience matches up to the five dimensions of Fair Work: Effective Voice, Opportunity, Security, Fulfilment and Respect.
Fair Work Convention Co-Chairs Professor Patricia Findlay and Grahame Smith said:
"We encourage all youth workers to use and share our Fair Work Self-Assessment tool, to help shape fair workplaces. You can support us in promoting this tool to the young people you work with who are in employment. Fair Work can make real difference and is good for individuals, employers and society creating a workforce that is confident, skilled, well led and effective."
