Free workplace legal advice and ‘Know your rights’ presentation for international students

The Working Women's Centre is inviting you to unpack your questions about workplace rights and get some free one-on-one workplace legal advice.

About this event

Are you an international student doing a part-time/casual job in South Australia? Do you have questions about your work? Questions such as: 

  • Should I be receiving payslips?  
  • What are the legal pay rates?  
  • Are cash-in-hand jobs illegal?  
  • Do I need an ABN?  
  • If I accept a cash-in-hand job, will my visa be cancelled?  
  • What can I do if I am being underpaid or mistreated at work?  
  • What is a trade union and should I become a union member?

Come along and we will unpack some of your questions about workplace rights. It’s okay if you don’t have any prepared questions, just come along and you may learn something you didn’t know before. 

This event will have 2 parts –  

1) Know your rights education session: We will take you through the basics of your rights at work. You will leave this session knowing more about your work rights in Australian workplaces.  We will also tell you where you can go if you have questions or problems in the future.   

2) Free Legal Advice Clinic: The Working Women’s Centre can offer free legal advice to international students, migrants, and refugees about work-related issues. Usually, one would have to go through an online or phone booking system but at our advice clinic you can simply walk up and ask our experienced advisors any questions you may have about your current or past working situations!  

Snacks will be provided!
