Terms and Conditions

What is the Federal Minimum Wage?

The national minimum wage is the minimum wage that applies to employees who aren’t covered by an award or agreement. Please refer to the following Fair Work link for the most up to date minimum wage rate : Current Fair Work Minimum Wage

What are the terms and conditions for student use of vacancy listings?

  1. The Employment Service does not screen employers who advertise on the Jobs Board. Students are responsible for taking care of their own personal safety when attending a job or an interview. If attending a private household, take reasonable precautions such as letting someone know where you are going and when you will be back.
  2. While job ads are monitored by the Employment Service, we cannot be responsible for the employment terms offered to students. Students must ensure that their pay and conditions meet federal minimum standards – the Employment Service can direct you to information on these.

The Adelaide University Union does not maintain a student database. All vacant positions are advertised to students and those who believe they are suitable then apply.

All tutoring positions are advertised by this method – no student databases are maintained. If you have questions, please email employment@auu.org.au
