Fair Work Australia’s Guidelines for Unpaid Work Experience & Internships

When you participate in an internship through Australian Internships, you can be assured that we are fully compliant with Fair Work Australia guidelines. In addition,  we maintain regular communication with Fair Work Australia regarding quality internship options for international students and young professionals.

They have defined lawful unpaid work to 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. For more information, please visit www.fairwork.gov.au
