Freedom of association is the right of workers to become and remain a member of their union, and engage in legitimate union activity, without fear of discrimination. Any employer who attempts to prevent, punish or disadvantage a nurse or midwife exercising their right to freedom of association is breaking the law and may be liable for an order to pay a penalty of up to $13,000 for an individual, reinstate a dismissed employee or not carry out a threat.
This information sheet outlines why action by an employer is unlawful.
