Peak Employers Group
AFEI is an independent peak employers group - one of the oldest and most respected business advisory organisations in Australia. For over 100 years AFEI has been representing and advising employers and influencing employer policy. Our employment law experts have been a major party in almost every major test case in the NSW industrial jurisdiction and subsequently in Fair Work Australia.
As a peak employers group, AFEI is a major contributor to the formulation of employer policy and is actively involved in all major workplace relations issues affecting Australian businesses.
AFEI is a not-for-profit employer organisation with over 3,500 members and more than 60 affiliated industry associations. Our main role is to advise, represent and assist employers in meeting their obligations relating to workplace relations, to assist them with human resources management, to provide WHS and other relevant training and, importantly, to seek appropriate regulation from government. We have an in house legal firm, AFEI Legal.
Our membership extends across employers of all sizes and a wide diversity of industries.
AFEI was founded in 1903 as the Employers' Federation of NSW, making it one of the oldest employer groups in Australia. Garry Brack is Chief Executive of AFEI.
