Under the Fair Work Act 1994 (SA) the South Australian Employment Tribunal constituted as the South Australian Employment Court has jurisdiction to hear and determine any question, action or claim founded on, or otherwise arising out of or in relation to a contract of employment [s 10].
A common example of this is an allegation of a breach of contract.
The South Australian Employment Tribunal may make a number of different orders if they find a breach of contract, including: an order of specific performance, granting an injunction, or awarding damages [s 10 (2)-(5)].
