The Australian Charter of Employment Rights is a blueprint for the future of industrial relations in Australia.

The Charter is a back-to-basics attempt to define the rights of workers and employers. It is a simply expressed contemporary document that draws upon international as well as uniquely Australian rights and values to create a set of rights and obligations which all workplaces are encouraged to adopt and observe. The Charter enables a critique of current labour laws and any proposals for change.

The Australian Charter of Employment Rights is the collaborative effort of seventeen of Australia's leading IR practitioners, lawyers and economists, edited by Mordy Bromberg and Mark Irving. It is the initiative of the Australian Institute of Employment Rights, an independent tripartite body representing workers, employers and the public interest.

"The Charter of Australian Employment Rights leads the way for industrial relations in Australia – a way towards greater harmony and greater prosperity. It is a worthy objective, which can be achieved by employers and workers adopting a template for workplace fairness."

Bob Hawke
