About the Levels of Government in Western Australia


Nationwide, the government is broken down into 3 levels; Commonwealth (or Federal) Government, State/Territory Government and Local Government. Every level is in charge of it's particular industrial relations so they accordingly regulate and hire their work force on their own. Every level of government and exactly how they recruit is described in more detail following.

The Commonwealth (or Federal) Government deploys laws produced by the Federal Parliament. The Federal Government's obligations are determined in the Australian Constitution and fundamentally incorporate countrywide concerns, like industry and commerce, currency, immigration, defence, telecommunications and welfare. The Commonwealth Government is headed by a Prime Minister. Commonwealth Government agencies can be found in all areas of Australia, within both urban and non-urban regions.
