Abstract/Summary Note on federal and State industrial relations systems and awards: in Australia, the employment conditions of employees have traditionally been detailed in awards, which are usually occupational or industry- based prescriptive documents determined by industrial tribunals. Historically, Australia had a different state-based industrial relations system for each of its six States, as well as a federal system. Federal awards applied to employees working in the federal public sector and for companies with similar operations in more than one State, while State awards covered the State public sector and company operations operating in a single State. Traditionally, the federal system had set the standard for conditions, with State systems usually ratifying federal decisions shortly afterwards.
