Please note: Self managers across Australia need to understand all these legal areas.

However, each State or Territory has their own Industrial Relations, Workers' Compensation and Health and Safety laws. The information in this module about these areas of law is for people in Western Australia only. If you live outside Western Australia, please check the laws in your own State or Territory.  Only Taxation and Superannuation laws apply nationally.
