JobWatch is pleased to announce our new self-representation kit, 'Making a Small Claim Under the Fair Work Act 2009' is now available for download.

The new kit was written to assist employees to recover minimum entitlements in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia. This kit was made possible by a grant from the Office of the Fair Work Ombudsman.
