A business is usually considered a constitutional corporation if it is incorporated and has significant financial or trading activities. A proprietary limited ("Pty. Ltd.") company is a constitutional corporation, and the classification also includes (but is not limited to) charitable organisations, educational institutions and health services providers.
If the business you are enquiring in regards to is a Constitutional Corporation it falls under the jurisdiction of the federal labour relations system. For enquiries relating to wages and conditions in the federal system, please contact the Workplace Infoline on 1300 363 264 or via their website.
While it is possible that our department may be able to address your enquiry, in some instances we may need to refer you to the relevant agency.
