About the Levels of Government in South Australia


Australia's government is separated down into three levels; Commonwealth (or Federal) Government, State/Territory Government and Local Government. Each level accounts for it's own personal industrial relations so they subsequently coordinate and hire their labourforce individually. Each level of government and how they recruit is described in greater detail following.

The Commonwealth (or Federal) Government. The Commonwealth (or Federal) Government deploys legislation produced by the Federal Parliament. The Commonwealth Government's responsibilities are determined in the Australian Constitution and chiefly embody countrywide matters, for example industry and commerce, currency, immigration, defence, telecommunications and welfare. The Commonwealth Government is headed by the Prime Minister. Commonwealth Government divisions can be found almost everywhere in Australia, within urban and non-urban areas.
