Your Rights at Your Disability Employment Service

The Australian Unemployed Workers’ Union is currently working on a comprehensive DES unemployed workers guide.

If you have any urgent questions about your DES agency, contact the Department of Employment Customer Service Line on 1800 805 260.

In the meantime, we encourage all DES unemployed workers to look at the official DES guidelines to find out about your rights.
