About the Levels of Government in Queensland


Australia's government is divided into three levels; Commonwealth (or Federal) Government, State/Territory Government and Local Government. Every single level accounts for it's own industrial relations and so they due to this fact take care of and hire their workforce individually. Each level of government and exactly how they conduct their recruitment is outlined in more detail next

The Commonwealth (or Federal) Government implements laws and regulations created by the Federal Parliament. The Commonwealth Government's obligations are set out in the Australian Constitution and essentially incorporate national things, for example industry and commerce, currency, immigration, defence, telecommunications and welfare. The Commonwealth Government is headed by a Prime Minister. Commonwealth Government departments can be found all over Australia, both in regional and rural regions.

Local governments in Queensland help the state and are usually in the form of a council or shire. They are responsible for town planning, building works, local roads, parking, water and sewerage, waste disposal, domestic animals and community facilities. A council is headed by a Mayor.
