The simple answer is yes. The AFPA has met the restrictions and requirements under the Fair Work Act 2009 in order to create the opportunity for members to undertake protected industrial action. The AFP is prohibited from taking adverse action against you because you take part in, or propose to take part in, any form of protected industrial action. 

Please take detailed notes of anything you consider adverse action.  

When you take part in protected industrial action, you simply need to stick to the rules and only engage in action as described in the Order from the Fair Work Commission. This is important – if you undertake action that has not been approved by the Fair Work Commission, the industrial action may be deemed to be unprotected, and you may be subject to legal action, disciplinary action or dismissal.
