NSW Industrial Relations (NSW IR) primary responsibilities are to monitor wages, employment rights, obligations and employment conditions in NSW.

NSW IR administers NSW laws regulating shop trading hours, public holidays and long service leave. Compliance officers provide advice with respect to entitlements, undertake targeted industry compliance campaigns and investigate complaints. NSW IR also has a dedicated inspectorate tasked with monitoring and enforcing the provisions of Building and Construction Procurement Guidelines which commenced on 1 July 2013.

NSW Industrial Relations also:

  • provides strategic public and private sector policy advice to the NSW Government
  • provides specialist support to public sector agencies regarding the application of the Government’s Wages Policy and implementation of Government reforms, and
  • actively participates as a partner in the Commonwealth’s national workplace relations framework.
